I moved to New York from a ranch in Montana with the dream of
being a famous artist (or at least making a living). I was working at a gallery
and rubbing shoulders with the art-world elite, showing my portfolio and trying
to dress the part. I coveted Givenchy and Margiela and the only way I
could get it was at the thrift stores I’d been scouring for art-making
materials. My love of treasure
hunting merged with my admiration for entrepreneurship and sprung up as a small
business selling designer clothes to savvy shoppers in New York City. Almost a
decade later I'm excited to launch Mode
Marteau to bring everyone
direct access to my amazing designer fashion finds.
My artwork has been exhibited at the Museum
of Arts and Design in New York City and the Cutlog Art Fair among others.
My work has been reviewed and
published in numerous publications, including, The New York
Times, Fast Company and Time Out New York.
