Always On Top Hat Designs
I grew up on a farm in a fairly remote area of Alberta. I didn’t know any artists and never imagined there could be people who made a living with art. As an adult, I moved around a bit and found there were artists everywhere. I dabbled in various media for years and found my passion: portrait and wedding photography. When I realized my eyes wouldn’t be reliable, I found hats. Custom hats. Concept hats. Editorial hats. Fashion hats. I am still learning techniques from my two millinery mentors and am gathering information from all the textilists I come into contact with.
