Among the many crafts I love to explore, Millinery and leather-work are two which appeal to my detail-oriented mind. Below are some of my favorite projects in both mediums.
“Baroque Inspired Masquerade Masks”- 2017
“Fire Masks”- Opera SLO Commission- 2015
In 2015, I was asked by Opera SLO Resident Costume Designer Randy Poole to design and construct three “Fire Dancer” masks from leather for their production of Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci.
Below is a highlight video from the show- a clip of the masks being worn onstage can be found at 1:30.
