Made By Me

Mardi Gras 2010 Worn Again

In 2009, I created a tribute to the amazing Mardi Gras Indians out of salvaged fabrics for the Worn Again recycled fashion show.

Mardi Gras 2011 & My Stuffed Animal Dress!

For Mardi Gras 2011, I created a stuffed animal dress. Cause, you know… why not?!?

I’ve been making things and dreaming big for as long as I can remember. I loved making collages as a kid and doing anything crafty. While doing community theatre in high school, I got into sewing and making reconstructed and upcycled clothing. Later, when I was doing craft shows regularly, I started making jewelry, using a mix of vintage findings and new colorful, fun materials.

I love art and design in all its many forms. Embroidery, cross-stitch and doodling are things I love to do… You can find some of my original illustrations and photographs on products on Zazzle, and occasionally on Teespring:

More recently, I’ve gotten back into the performing arts, with a different twist this time: in 2014, I graduated from the New Orleans Drag Workshop. You can sometimes find me performing around New Orleans as my alter ego, Glamdromeda Strange.
