Apparel & Textile Design

My Creative and Technical Design Skills include apparel design and construction, visual merchandising, pattern alteration, fashion illustration, textile design, and hand construction and surface design techniques including: quilting, hand-knitting, hand-spinning, weaving, and embroidery. My design philosophy is to make textiles and apparel that are useful, sustainable, and beautiful, with emphasis on traditional and historical techniques.
