Textile Design and Upcycling
As a young girl, I would go visit "Ma Mère" - my French grandmother who immigrated as a young teenager to the US. She crocheted and braided rugs from old clothes. Over the years, she taught me to knit, crochet, and most of all to be resourceful. These skills have spilled over into my fashion design career, the boutiques that housed my designs, and have heavily influenced my fine art.
Here are some things that I can do - from upcycling, hand stitching, screen printing, vintage sourcing, product development and more. If you're interested in a commission or hiring me for a special project, please email ME@MEandBlue.com and let's chat.
