Artist Statement

Albert Einstein once said, “Logic will get you from A to B, but imagination will take you everywhere.”  That quote sums up how I approach both costume design and costume technology: first identify the logical requirements, then determine how those requirements can be creatively transformed.  My knowledge of fashion history and garment construction answer the former.  The later can be solved in a myriad of ways—mashing up periods to create a new aesthetic, incorporating contemporary features or technologies, or creatively engineering an element that seems to defy the laws of logic or physics unlocking the imagination of the audience.

The laws of physics govern our lives, and science is all around us—including the arts.  As a lover of science and an advocate for STEAM (science, technology, engineering, ART, and mathematics), I actively look for ways to include science and technology in my work.

I seek to collaborate on art that is provocative, sparks curiosity, inspires conversation, and opens eyes to new aspects and possibilities.
