Sometimes it comes in a flash, I see the piece in it's entirety just ready to be made. Other times it just a slight flicker at the corners...like fireworks in the distance.
My inspiration comes from everything I see, experience, and enjoy. It may manifest itself into the overall design or just a hint of the piece that only I know it's true origin. I'm always looking and working towards the creative and hoping that when it's completed it was meant to be.
Thank you for taking the time to look through my creations and I hope you feel it was meant to be too.

19th century couture merges with cyberpunk to create a dream envisioned for other worlds.
Technology advances, propelling humans beyond Earth and toward the stars. Lady Ethereal is a noblewoman in a world where the Victorian silhouette has been re-imagined in space age style. By using natural and synthetic materials, cutting edge technology, and literary inspiration from the cyberpunk genre, Lady Ethereal is a celebration of the feminine form and celestial possibilities.
We looked to Victorian fashion silhouettes to achieve a curvaceous, flowing, and powerful form in galaxy patterned latex, integrating sculptural elements. We explored transforming acrylic into a material that pushed past its rigid nature, creating a shape that echoed the gown’s voluptuous silhouette.
