“While my work has been sometimes described as vintage looking, it is really more transitional, drawing from both contemporary and vintage aspects. It is designed to be slightly frivolous and certainly colorful, and yet set into structured framework. It fits dress up to blue jeans, and is intended for the working woman. There are many sides to all of us. Our personalities are a collage of the lighthearted and the serious, as is my work. I hope you enjoy.”
