Wearable Art

I've been entering the WOW Award Show since 1995 now and it is probably fair to say I am completely addicted to making a garment each year. Here are entries I've have done over the years. I run workshops on Wearable Art for teachers, students and individuals, so if you are interested in knowing more just e-mail me.
