My work is made to be broken. It is meant for using, touching, washing, and staining. It is for giving and receiving. Inspired by Southern Italian theater and children’s clothing, I design sustainable clothing and objects meant to rekindle the fun and play we lose in the transition from children to adults. Using exciting color combinations, alternative texture patterns, and quilting techniques, I am able to create unique, one of a kind pieces that resemble garments you might find in a child’s dress-up closet. In this way, my textiles do not go out of style because style is not their purpose.
Upon attending college, I instantly observed how much wasted material (drawing pads, cleaning chemicals, paint tubes, etc.) the students in my fine arts classes were simultaneously accumulating and wasting. Driven by this distaste, I was motivated to start my own personal path towards design production that was more fulfilling and utilitarian.
