I am an Irish born designer and textile artist based in New York.
I studied fashion design at Parsons School of Design.
I restore and restyle vintage bridal gowns.
I also create one of a kind dress art incorporating hand stitching,
vintage fabrics and embroidery, beading, knitting and elements of nature..
When creating each piece I use objects such as shells, feathers, beading, hand knitting
and fabrics that I have collected over the years.
A good deal of hand stitching is involved in making each dress unique.
