The vibe seems to be armor, animals, and articulation
I am an interdisciplinary artist, lately working primarily in textiles. I'm a consummate upcycler having started in my grandmother's sewing room scrap bin before I'd aged into double digits. Whether costuming an opera cast, staying up all night making ball gowns, or creating some wacky thing to wear to a party, I love getting lost in a project and following it where the fabric takes me. My decade+ working with corporations on sustainability, including supply chain issues, has led to a huge curiosity on how we produce textiles and how to reduce the impact of what has become a very destructive industry.
Under the banner of Dirigo Linum, I am growing and processing my own textile materials and engaging the community to learn with me.
Enigmatic Vesture is an exploration in upcycled and avant garde fashion. In 2023, the vibe seems to be armor, animals, and articulation.
I'm a singer, performer, and licensed massage therapist (co-owner Hark House). Being and becoming embodied has had a strong influence on my interest in knowing the origin of the things I consume and touch.
