I have been obsessed with sewing and textiles for as long as I can remember. I started sewing and designing at the age of 6 and have been honing my crafts ever since.

While I have worked in bridal and couture, my real love is costuming. I love the way putting on a costume, or cosplay, gives you a special kind of freedom to explore parts of you that cannot be explored in "real life".

My personal cosplay and costumes focus on mixing my love for historical and traditional clothing with my favorite characters to create what I call historical mashups.
