As a child I learned basic stitches from my grandmother in the back country of South Carolina. I taught myself to sew headbands and dresses when I inherited her materials in 2006. In 2007, my formal training resumed when I became assistant to the milliner Leigh Magar at Magar Hatworks. I love the history of a used object and my supplies have thus expanded to include antique gloves, old crayon paper, photographs, broken toys, hand-spun wool and hand-dyed recycled fabrics. I am inspired by natural forms found in the sea, forest and garden. The intersection of these areas in the final product is a conversation about the value of the discarded and disregarded as well as a moment of joy.
