I am a textile artist and eco designer. I love to take old, unwanted, fabrics and transform them into something unique, fun, and desirable. I like to use all kinds of fabrics in my creations. I have made hats from doilies, bags from curtains, and dresses from sheets. The only limitation to my creativity is how much fabric I have to work with. Because, I like to make so many different kinds of items I have two etsy shops. Green Trunk Designs is my accessory shop, where I sell my hand crafted hats and OOAk mat bags. Green Trunk Clothing is where I sell my line of funky eco clothing and Vintage Reproduction clothing.
My Husband is a talented photographer and takes most of the photos for my shop. He is very supportive of my work; for which I am very grateful, especially considering we live in a one room apartment, and my sewing projects tend to take up a lot of space.
My creative work space consists of a lovely vintage desk, and an old green army trunk. This trunk is special to me because it used to belong to my Dad. It was issued to him when he was in the military. I inherited the green trunk as a kid to use as my toy box, and now that I’m older…well it is still my toy box and the name of my shops.
10% of all sales from my shops go to support the WAMAMA Sewing Project of Lake Kivu Christian Center in Goma, DR Congo, E. Africa for more information go to http://www.lkccgoma.com/
