As an artist, designer and crafter, I concern myself with matters of meaning, craftsmanship and sustainability.  And when I say sustainability, I mean ecologically and culturally.  I want to make art that does something outside itself.  I want to make objects that make everyday life more like art.

My Etsy shop is a way for me to promote these ideals through objects that I love and can easily share.  When I can, I choose to recycle vintage objects that have ended up at the end of the line physically or stylistically.  That handmade orange and green polka-dot prom dress with 12″ fringe can only exist as an object of curiosity or disappear completely after a while.  I set out to make it useful and coveted once again.  The ephemeral value of the object and materials act as conceptual packaging for a functional object of beauty.
