I am an artist and children’s wear designer in St. John’s Newfoundland, currently working out of a studio in the Quidi Vidi Village Plantation. I find inspiration and comfort in the strong craft and heritage preservation of this province.

My love of making blossomed in my first job at a reenactment museum in Thunder Bay, Ontario where I recreated fur trade era garments. This work gave me an appreciation for traditional fabrics, patterns, and methods, which I carry on throughout my work today.

Upon my move from Ontario to Newfoundland, I found that same love of heritage everywhere, and now blend the traditional designs from my life with the culture I have become a part of.
