Working with my hands is a form of meditation for me, and creating useful items that brighten someone's day makes me happy. It's my passion.
A native New Yorker, I first started making handbags in my downtime while working backstage on Broadway shows. I used leftover fabrics and leathers from costumes to learn how to make handbags and soon enough, it became a small business.
My work has been sold in boutiques throughout New York City and at local artists' markets.
Each piece is designed, hand-cut, and handmade in my studio in Brooklyn, New York with materials sources locally and from Italy and Mexico.
Bio: Past credits in costume work for Broadway include Disney's The Lion King, Hamilton, Phantom of the Opera, and Radio City Music Hall's Christmas Spectacular; in fashion, for collections for brands including Givenchy, Saint Laurent, and Emmanuel Ungaro; in sports, as the tailor to the players for the U.S. Open tennis tournament; and in costumes for television and film.
