pattern drafting: where art and clothing meet

Cold and rainy winters finds me working indoors more often then the rest of the year, and more inclined to solitude then collaboration: a good time  for studio based work to happen, most pieces unfold over a few  years. I  love the challenge of pattern drafting, sometimes for wearables, but also for sculptural forms that reference the human body.
