Designing patterns has always been one of my creative passions. Throughout my fashion accessory work, I have been able to combine and apply patterns, fresh bold colors and various painting techniques to beautiful silk fabrics. Each fashion accessory item is a unique, painted silk, wearable work of art. My collection has been displayed and exhibited in venues, stores and fashion/art events in the Midwest Region of the U.S.
