Historical costumer, writer, classically trained singer, painter, dollmaker, actress . . . whew! I've been designing and building costumes for twelve years or so, but I've really been obsessed with costuming since I was five. Since then, every bit and scrap of paper, fabric, bead and bauble near me has been fair game and usually finds its way into something I'm making! I try to always be creating something, whether I am writing a new book, painting in acrylics on anything that will stand still, or trying to figure out a way to make a fabric-sculpted dragon with articulated wings . . . well, my brain doesn't let me stop moving;)

I am totally passionate about what I create, and I want every woman who wears one of my pieces to feel glam and beautiful. My pieces are all a little retro with a dash of whimsical and a soupcon of real history thrown in . . . but never boring! I love making one of a kind pieces for every bride I work with; commissions are my specialty;) Read less

I selected 2 headbands and not only did they arrive exactly when I was told they would arrive, but they were packaged in a lovely tissue with a matching velvet ribbon and had a hand-made thank you card. I know that's not a functional point but it the special presentation was unexpected and made for an even lovelier experience. That says something to me about the artist. Also, one piece looked exactly like it did in the photo but the other was even prettier.
