Handmade one-of-a-kind clothing for the creative spirit

Wow.  I can't believe my "Rainbow Twist" Upcycled Bell Bottom Jeans have been pinned over 1,000 times!  Want a custom pair of hand tie-dyed funky flares?  Email me and I'll give you the details on how to start a custom order ;)



LOVE THIS MAGAZINE!  And SEW honored to have two more items featured in the Fall 2017 issue!  This marks the 6th Altered Couture magazine my creations have been featured in with a total of 12 featured items!  I have plenty more goodies to upcyle and more ideas than hours in the day!  Can't stop won't stop :)



My Upcycled dress made the COVER of Altered Couture Magazine's Spring 2016 issue!  I am beyond honored!

This fabulous magazine is packed full of amazing wearable art from all over the world!  Pick it up at your local newsstand, craft store or book shop!

What's New

I am back in Asheville!  It will be a while before my studio is set up, but my Etsy shop is back up and running!  I hope to be able to accept custom orders soon!  I will keep ya posted...



Woo-hoo!  This is Altered Couture magazine marks my 10th featured item!  I've also been featured in 5 Altered Couture magazines!  So very proud to be a somewhat "regular" artist in this publication - lots of talent within these pages!  I submitted my "On the Dock of the Bay "Dress for the Out-to-Sea Challange.  My dress was one of 8 that won the feature :)



Yes, I'm still here... but my sewing machine isn't :(  Don't worry, I hope to get it fixed as soon as I can!  I was able to make a few patches before it went fizzed out - I will be posting them soon!  


I am setting up this website for DIRECT SALES!  I will also be selling my creations in my Etsy shop, but will have more available items on my website.  I will be using a secure server checkout via Paypal.  Stay tuned!


I'm excited to be selling my goodies at the Circle in West Asheville again!  Dropped off the first batch this weekend... this is a real motivator to make more than just patches - so keep an eye out for new summer designs: skirts, tops, dresses and bell bottoms!


I am CONSTANTLY making new patches, so please check in frequently.  Have an idea? Email me and share your idea - maybe I can stitch it up for ya!

Hello!  Welcome to my new website!  It's a work in progress...  I'll be adding more gallery photos and my blog as soon as I can! 



LOTS of NEW handmade patches!!  Designed and embroidered by me, these unique iron-on"patchliques" are inspired by nature, music and love.   Available in my Etsy Shop.
