I am a 6th generation Californian. I grew up in the beautiful Sierra Foothills of Northern California in a small picturesque historic gold-rush era mining community,surrounded by the Tahoe National Forest . I have also lived in the San Francisco bay area for many years.
Living in California there is an interesting and evident juxtaposition of cultures and tastes,which intersect here...from the Old Wild West,the Victorian Era,and the 49er Gold Rush,including influences from the Pacific Rim,the Orient,and of course,South of the Border !
My Mother's love and sense of Fashion Classics is my foundation. The subculture,cutting edge trends and innovations,have always been an integral part of California Culture which has had a tremendous influence on my designing tastes and personal style,which can best be described as, Eclectic Bohemian Chic !
