Mover, Maker & Creator


I am passionate about dance and the fabric arts.

I currently live in the Chicago area, near beautiful Lake Michigan in a tiny studio with my fiance, four minnows, and a pond snail named Gary. My work is all created in my studio on my Singer Esteem sewing machine.


I’m currently working on some new projects involving embroidery, sewing, reverse embroidery, and more. Stay tuned!


I both perform and choreograph, and am most interested in jazz, tap, and social dance. I also study tango, the lyra, and burlesque. I’m always interested in collaborating with artists of different disciplines and have worked with writers and musicians in the past.


I design eco-friendly wearable art that is both functional and fashionable!

"Those who dance are considered insane by those who cannot hear the music."
