the painted dress

I don't think I've ever told the story of how fashion just kinda happened for me. In so many words...I painted dresses, a lot of them. Honestly, I never noticed till my mother pointed it out to me(20 years later). Was I secretly fulfilling a need to design clothing without doing it? I don't know, but I listened. In the end it made since,the color,textiles,patterns, fashion became my sculptural paintings.
