my company fancyVANDALS started on the streets of LA, with a spray can, a stencil and the idea that dressing up in fancy clothes would allow me to go unnoticed while creating street art in the wee-hours of the night. Thus...fancyVANDALS was born.
Although the medium has changed, the idea of duality, dichotomy, and juxtaposition still inspire me. Think stilettos and spray paint, skulls and Swarovskis, gas masks and glitter, and beautiful destruction. These are the ideas which fuel my passion.
I create artistic apparel for the fashionably deviant.
Identifying more with art than fashion, I moved my business into a warehouse amongst a very eclectic group of artists - builders, painters, welders, set designers, costume makers, and electricians...who were all kind enough to share their knowledge with me. My skill set continues to grow every day, and I find my passion for art growing exponentially. I'm a hard core crafter and the fanciest of VANDALS. I hope to continue to find new and innovative ways to grow and create .
