You might be wondering where I have been? All I can tell you is that, I am lost in my multi-dimensional world, created by the release of my suppressed day-dreams. I have received self-encouragement to induce my creative dream-state. The combinations I will speak of and show in my waken-state will be inconceivable, simply because they are the recordings from every thing that has evoked My senses; these combinations are unique to me and only me, yet they are relatable. WE ARE ONE!
They say provocative and obnoxious, risky and naive
and yet, the negative connotations of these words simply say more about their character than mine. We live in a world of clarity, where everything and everyone is placed into categories. I have this overwhelming urge to make others questions those categories. I want to create an environment where others can have their spirit free and their voice be heard, because all I feel is empowerment and as I woman, I feel obligated to pass that strength along.

I sifted through a WAREHOUSE full of vintage housewares and clothes. Everything was boxed and packaged away since the 80s. I spent 12+ hours a day, in a time wrap and I have never been so overwhelmed and visually stimulated!
History intrigues everyone because it is the narrative of our past lives, whether it is about a culture or our personal lives. I truly believe we are One and so a painful past should stay irrelevant. So some either try greatly to ignore history or spend a vast amount of resources trying to understand it.
I have a love affair with vintage clothes. The discussion of a vintage item must look at its history . I carefully search for clues acquired through the 1920s wedding-dress’ journey through time. While looking closely at the craftsmanship, I get lost in my head rewriting the story behind this treasure and all the others. During my time spent barricaded in this warehouse, I obtained a collection of hideous and questionable gowns from weddings or the holidays. After I squeezed into the dresses, my thoughts quickly composed a fairytale in my head; I wonder what occasion this dress was worn at. So I decided to create a fairytale!
