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.
