I am a local Kansas City artist who uses fabric as canvas. Inspired by hippie culture I wanted to take tie dye in a new direction and create one of a kind pieces that can be worn for any occasion . Using fabric as canvas I upcycle pieces that inspire me and redesign them to a whole new level. All pieces are hand tied and dyed and are one of a kind works of art. I have shown my eco-friendly looks in many runway shows in the Kansas City area, I also do photo shoots with many of Kansas City's top models.
