I am a Freelance and Fine Artist, Designer, Costumer, Quilter and Fabricator. I design "OWL Artisan Apparel & Accessories from Stage to Ceremony". Inspiration is derived from music, green design, design history, critical theory, anthropology, traditional quilting, myth, fairy tales, mysticism, geometry & physics. I also work in oil, ink, pencil, watercolor, clay, collage & printmaking. I also offer private sewing and design classes out of my studio in Portland, Oregon.
