Are you one of those extraordinary people who dances to their own free spirited drum beat? Do you find yourself drawn to artsy, unconventional, meaningful design?
Did you gleefully shout "Yes, that's me!" Well, that means you and Collage Cloth™ are perfect for each other!
I create mixed media fabric art fashion and home adornments. My intention is to inspire you and make your journey through this wondrous life even more magical. Promoting feelings of love, joy and boundless possibilities through design is my goal.
My creations embrace four distinct collections:
LOVE & SPIRIT
The look is a calming combination of wabi-sabi and shabby chic. I mesh homespun fabrics, soft and earthy palettes with Zen inspired themes.
POWER & PROSPERITY
Freestyle bold energy. Powerful color combinations, blingy embellishments and dynamic text nurture feelings of well-being, empowerment and infinite potential.
Solid colors and artful surprises. I use geometric shapes and their symbolism to create an expressive collection designed to present a structured look and symmetrical serenity.
STORY OF A FELLOW FREE SPIRIT
My road to handcrafting began years ago in the Bronx, New York when my Grandma Bessie, who was a gifted seamstress, introduced me to sewing. Her black antique Singer sewing machine fascinated me and she patiently taught me how to measure, cut and stitch using all kinds of fabric. She also taught me how to crochet and embroider. Grandma not only instilled within my young psyche an adoration for making things, she also made sure I realized the importance of being good person.
I wanted to expand my crafting horizons so I began a challenging, yet enchanting journey into learning mixed media fabric collage and graphic design. An affection for textiles and an obsession with color, form and textural imperfections produces my overall design style which I describe as chaotic harmony.
My smoke free home studio is located on the beautiful South Shore of Long Island in the state of New York.
Wishing you peace and bliss!
