Artist Bio

Tamara Kenney specializes in bridal work, including alterations and redesign, as well as making custom christening gowns from wedding gowns. She has used gowns of the baby’s mom, grandmother, and even great grandmother. The creative process of making a piece to be cherished and passed on, is what Tamara enjoys the most.

Artist Statement

I love the process and challenge of redesigning a wedding gown and working closely with the bride to design a gown that has a special meaning to her and reflects her style. And, in the making of a christening gown from a once worn wedding gown, this gives me creative freedom while including special details and all fabrics and trims from the original gown. The end result is always unique.
