I am a couturiére, practicing the art of dressmaking. Couture is my reason for being. It is a constant striving with my best efforts reaching toward perfection of my objects and their performance. My work exists at the junction of art and highend ready-to-wear clothes. Like architecture, this art form is lived in. Its effect varies, often changing in appearance over time. It has many dimensions. It is the name of my dreams. A working artist serving clientele for over thirty-five years, I focus on the woman and make each garment, from concept through to finishing. Every life experience is unique and contributes to our personal spirit. Translating the language of dressing the body - fashion - defines my being and discerns the individual in my clients while recognizing our shared humanity. Themed shows in my Ann Arbor studio suggest possibilities. These venues reinforce my belief in the value of meaningful dress, a reasoning of cloth, the body and identity. Sense of Skin - coming Oct. 2010 Things Japanese - Oct. 09 The practice of my craft. I am challenged by Zen cultural readings concerning the concentrated pursuit of art as necessary for ethical learning, a way to be in the world. Origins - Feb. 08 Exploring the influence of the African aesthetic in my life and work: using rhythm, color, materials, to reaffirm life’s spirit, finding beauty in tragic reality, laughter after pain. Still Life: re forming Nature - Oct. 07 Discerning sensuality in the myriad possibilities presented by floral relationships: vibrant color, warm tangibility, organic complexity, edges of darkness and the fleeting quality of joy and exuberance. Birds! - Feb. 07 Inspired by knowledge gleaned through care of my chickens and by the free dream of flight – evidence of levity. Couture: the art of dressmaking, melds my designer aesthetic sense with beautiful materials, intricate technique and interactive process to engage a client’s personality.

I am an artist that loves to create toys that bring happiness to children small and big
I am a self-taught artist from Chelsea. I love to paint abstract portraits! I use acrylic paints, and I paint on everything from canvas, ceramic tiles, handbags and shoes! I also paint with my computer and have these designs printed on handbags, t-shirts, card cases and more! I hope you love my work as much as I love creating it!
