I design and produce a line of hand-screen-printed trouser socks and velvet gloves. My collection is sold in museum stores, galleries and boutiques across the country. My designs are often based on art historical sources - Renaissance pomegranate patterns, Medieval illuminated manuscripts, 19th century Lace, Middle Eastern embroidery, the work of Klimt and Mondrian.

I began producing hand-printed legwear while working as an intern at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art - which was then under the direction of Diana Vreeland.

My work has appeared in Elle, Glamour, Interview & Brides magazines.

I also create custom accessories for museum exhibitions:

  • Imperial Tombs of China - Chinese Dragons socks, gloves & scarves. Portland Art Museum 1996
  • Splendors of Ancient Egypt - Egyptian Scarab socks & gloves. Portland & Phoenix Art Museums 1998
  • Stroganoff - Russian illuminated manuscript gloves. Portland Art Museum 2000
