I have spent almost three decades creating one of a kind leather dresses and jackets for horse show, rodeo queen and mainstream clientele. It has been a wonderful journey! I have seen five Miss Rodeo America’s crowned in my designs. My work has been featured in juried shows, the Autry Museum in Los Angeles, the book How the West Was Worn, and in several mgazines.
I am passionate about beauty and believe each designer has his or her own sense of balance, of color combinations, and design esthetic. Innately my designs tend to be not only glamorous but elegant and sophisticated with underlying femininity. By blending luscious leathers, exquisite laces, beads, crystals, and feathers, each piece takes on the trademark look I am known for.
My direction is now focused primarily on creating one of a kind handbags, belts, cuffs and collars. I would describe these pieces as sassy, seductive, yet sophisticated with just a touch of the old west. I continue to belive the highlight for me as a designer is to create pieces that help make the client feel more confident, more beautiful, more fun, more powerful, just more….
