“I had read about Ellen years before returning to the Bay Area from Southern California. I am so grateful to now have had the opportunity to work with her, and am fortunate to have personally benefitted from her unique talent and impeccable taste. Each design meeting felt like an artistic collaboration. The foundation of her art is quality and elegance. Ellen listens, has excellent ideas, and almost intuitively knows what works on me. In meeting with international delegations, including heads of state, it is important to have the confidence that one is perfectly outfitted, and Ellen’s creations guarantee that. She is truly practicing an almost lost art. We are very lucky that her doors are open to us!”

"When I was invited to attend the gala opening of the San Francisco Symphony, I knew just whom to call for my custom dress. After discussing possibilities, I met with her at her studio and selected a silk crepe with a coordinating lace from her amazing collection of beautiful fabrics. Ellen designed and made a gorgeous ensemble - a simple, but dramatically elegant gown that fit me more perfectly than anything I have ever owned, topped with an elegant Alencon lace capelet that is itself a piece of art. Her artistry perfectly captured my personal style, and her personality and professionalism made her a joy to work with."
