Tell us a little about yourself and what you sell.
I am an artmaker and scavenger. I live in a schoolbus with my partner and our pup. I make lots of different types of things and am often learning/exploring new ideas and techniques depending upon what materials may find their way into my studio/ bus.
I make lots of clothing from recycled materials, dresses from neckties, skirts from towels...etc.

I am driven by the idea of "rebirth" and "re purpose". I feel strongly that what the world needs now is less "stuff", but that does not mean we have to stop creating...there are so many materials waiting in thrift stores and junkyards to have new life breathed into them, just waiting to be assigned a new purpose. I want to be a part of a movement towards helping the masses recognize that recycling is not only "the right thing to do", but that it is also fun, fancy and fashionable!

Hmmmm...well I love making things, I have a lot of fun taking photos of my work and modeling it. I enjoy writing about my work and naming it....uhmmm...I guess I also really love making sales...don't love being on the computer too much...but I do like meeting other crafters online:)

I am inspired by living, even things that make me sad inspire me.
