hey all! i recently launched a kickstarter project in hopes of funding my spring 2013 line. i currently create all of my pieces by hand, but hopefully with the help of fans of this project i will be able to mass produce my line next season. click the link above to check out my video and to support the future of my line. thanks!!!


thanks so much to everyone who helped out with the show, attended, or just sent well wishes! i definitely have a few images and more info from that night, but i thought you all might want to take a look at a few images from the lookbook first….

my friend seth shimkonis was kind enough to spend the day with me taking and editing these photos. dawn kramlich lent her good looks to the operation!

another little peak at what’s been going on at the studio. this moto jacket turned into way more pieces than i expected it to! remember the bones + bows print from the by the yard show? i turned it into the lining used for some of the items in the show. you can see the shell in the second photo. guess you should come to the show to check out the finished product. ;o)

i sent out the official invite to the bones + bones show this week. if you didn’t receive a handwritten invitation sealed with skull + crossbones…it’s because i’m lucky enough to see you regularly and invite you in person! i also hope to see some new faces there. feel free to comment with any questions and i’ll get back to you.

i’m fortunate enough to have an awesome support system in my life. a few of you have been particularly helpful in this project. thanks laurentine, dani, teresa, dawn, seth and shawn!

a little sneak peek at what’s coming up next. i’m doing a show at part time studios in march. the piece above will be part of the collection featured in the show. obviously lots to do! ….but feeling good so far….

the bones + bows print for tonight’s by the yard show. i like the spooky, romantic feel. my print is just one of the many by some fantastic lady artists. hopefully i’ll see you at part time studios tomorrow night.

and now for some shameless promotion of my latest venture. there are some really great chicks participating in this show. if you can’t make the event, click on their names and prepare to be inspired.
