Konane is my middle name it means "Bright as Moonlight" in Hawaiian.
I've always been a Creative. A Maker, freely playing, discovering aesthetic relationships, shapes & possibilities. I studied Textile Design at the Rhode Island School of Design, RISD, and this is where I truly uncovered my life long passion for color, texture & form. After graduating RISD in 2005 I hitched a ride to Burning Man with my BFF & over a decade later find myself still passionate about regional burns and co-lead a theme camp, Ministry of Butterfly. I started designing sweaters & accessories for Free People for a few years then did some custom dye work for their Vintage line. I then moved into costume design for music videos working with The Killers in Las Vegas. After meeting my partner on top of a sacred mountain in New Mexico I moved to East Tennessee where I've been working as an accessory designer and slowly building my studio. I moved into my new studio in early 2018 & I am so excited to finally be back to creating and sharing my art.
You supporting my art means the world to me. This is how dreams are lived.
