I am an experimental textile designer with a passion for creating and working with sustainable textiles. My main inspiration comes from the rich colors, sights, and the culture of the American Southwest, specifically Santa Fe, New Mexico. All parts of Santa Fe inspire me, from unique warm tones of adobe and blues of the mountains, Spanish tiles, greens of the prickly pear to the smell of warm red chilis. I try to uses natural materials whenever my designs allow such as natural dyes, up-cycling, and reconstruction. I enjoy the act of transforming materials such as old denim or recycled materials, into something new and modern. Some of my design-related experiences include interning as a dress designer for Free People, styling and sales for Red Clover Boutique, working as a dye apprentice for Miranda Bennett Studio, and dye work for Room Shop Vintage .
