I have always considered myself as an artist. I mean, I draw, decorate, style and sing a little. It`s genetic!  In my family we are all about art, whichever the type. My father being an accomplished musician and my mother a talented seamstress what a waste it would have been if this passion for art did not make it to my siblings and I DNA.

I sometimes create... I deconstruct shirts or dresses to make them my own; I find a new utility for a picture frame and turn a broken necklace into a fabulous earring. However, never would I have thought that designing an accessory line, made out of ceramic tiles ,would have been in the cards for me.

When this challenge was proposed to me by one of my clients, Daltile, I said yes to it but secretly had no clue where I was going to go with it.  When in doubt, tell the clients yes and figure it out later I guess... 

Through the creative process a bunch of ideas crowded my head but I was still unclear on the colors I should go for or the size of tiles I should be using. Oh and how do I incorporate carpet (yes C-A-R-P-E-T) into all of this?

Well, here is the final result.

I must say that the client was really please with was shown on the catwalk and trust me, I could not be happier.

Happy client, my team and I

I want to say thank you to 2 of our best local designers, LuShyne and Anomal Couture. Without your beautiful clothes none of what I designed would have looked this good.
