Great news! In October 2017 I'll have a solo art show at Room 100 gallery in Durham's Goldenbelt. The show will display clothes and accessories made from recycled inner tubes, such as the items pictured above ("Creature Skin: Boss" & "A Coat for Louise").
I taught myself sewing to make Halloween costumes for family and friends, and I then I made practical things such as messenger bags. Now I make and modify clothes as another way to make creative statements.
