I redesigned my website, www.hatshadows.com, and added a shopping portal for my hand-crafted millinery supplies, fascinators, veiling and patterns for milliners and do-it-yourselfers.

I design and create stock and custom buckram hat frames. This allows milliners to bypass the steps of creating the structural foundation of their hat and focus on fabric and trimming.

My hats were sold in Barney's and boutiques in Soho and Dallas. They also appeared in film, TV and fashion runways. I worked with the renowned theatrical milliner, Woody Shelp and when I moved to Tucson I was the head milliner for the Arizona Opera Company.

Today, I concentrate on my millinery web store and the exploration and creation of sculptural hats. I enjoy teaching classes in millinery techniques and selling beautiful headwear.

In 2011 I attended Hat Camp in Portland, Oregon, sponsored by the Millinery Artisan Guild. It was informative and a pleasure to spend three days with professional and amateur milliners sharing stories, techniques, and camaraderie.
