welcome to the magpie studio!
a magpie loves to surround itself with sparkly things-
i created the magpie studio to be able to do just that--
surround myself with more sparkle, more often.
in the 15 plus years i've worked with the dancers of american ballet theatre,
i've always found the most joy in the details--
a minor alteration that perfects a bodice,
the addition of a trim that makes a tutu a dream,
and always, always headpieces.
a dancer's headpiece can change the way they feel about how they move.
it can be the difference between confidence and concern.
finding the right balance-- making things delicate & light,
but built to stand up to the rigors of performance--
is something i've worked on my entire career.
i'd love to have the opportunity to share that experience with you.
