Having arrived in Atlanta August 2005 from Escatawpa, MS a day before Hurricane Katrina hit, she has unleashed a fury of her own. She has adorned herself with strength, courage and determination to persevere to make a name for herself. Having lost 90% of everything to the storm, she impassionedly and dauntlessly announces: 'Katrina will not defeat me--you can't keep this good stitch down!'
'My art in thread is a bold, vibrant expression of avant-garde individuality. I develop a frenzied urgency of spiritual energy fusing the beautiful with the unusual. Each fiberous strand forges a new life of art for tomorrow's possibilities, today's vision and yesterday's strengths. I ardently test and push the boundaries of style by blending art with fashion, creativity with passion and edgy sophistication without apology.'
