Trish designs her own patterns then weaves one of a kind garments, production style, and has sold over 5000 pieces. Her passion for glamour, humor, and nontraditional materials like plastic signage tape, bubble wrap, mylar, shopping bags, etc. manifests itself into runway and competition ensembles. She began recycling materials years before it became popular, even using the tiniest handwoven scraps in original cards, books, and dolls. She has produced, exhibited, and modeled in many fashion shows, also curated Wearable Expressions, a biennial juried international show.
In addition to winning several awards and participating in numerous gallery exhibits, she has been featured in magazines, newspapers, four cable T.V. shows, three movies, and two books of only her work. She loves teaching, lecturing, and sharing her unique approach to clothing design for handweavers and has done so nationally. Her love of textiles has led to experimenting in related fiber techniques including discharge, contemporary felting, surface design, and patchwork all in an effort to use up years of accumulated materials.
