Sand is unchanging yet accelerates transformation- | MIGRANT SANDS |
As grains of sand travel through space and time, they shape the environment and carry with them remnants of their journey.
Enriched by a millenia of flora and fauna, the sands of the Sahara are lifted high by global air currents to far destinations. They carve the ancient limestone and lava rock of nearby Cabo Verde, and bring life to the distant Amazon forests of Brazil.
This collection is dedicated to the micro and macro levels of space, Time and matter that lift us and shape our own journeys.

"A visionary is an artist who creates what is seen in the unseen." -AA
At the age of three, I saw myself using fashion for philanthropy. I knew I was given a gift to one day transform the world. Transform and expose what has not been exposed before. As a child, imagination was my greatest friend. My hands were my entertainment. Together they helped me bring to life fantasy worlds. They still continue to do so. A lover of art and design, I create with great adoration for the world around me. Inspiration is found in all elements of life. I find such joy in creating something priceless out of forgotten treasures. When I am on the hunt for supplies, all is fair game. Finders Keepers! I search the world over for discarded wonders that look as if they have magnificent stories to tell. There is no method to the creation process. It's just simple island girl innovation. I manipulate until a piece is beautiful from every angle. Through sewing, painting, screen printing, hand beading, and hand embroidering, a piece then takes on a new form. Thus a masterpiece is born. Unique in every way. No two are alike.
The Journey Home Collection pours out from my soul, inspired by a love for the people and culture of that ten island archipelago I call paradise.
I introduce to you Bolsa Verde, the only Green Luxury bag line, and Menina Verde, the only Green Ready-To-Wear line.
Welcome to the world inside of my head. Enjoy the Ride...
