“My background is in architecture where I received both my Bachelors and Masters Degree in Architecture. After I graduated, I moved to a small town in SouthWestern Utah where I worked for a non-profit that designs and builds houses on the Navajo Indian Reservation (www.designbuildbluff.org). It was here that I learned the process of design and construction.  After doing this for 3 years, I quit the non-profit to work in a professional architecture firm where I continue to work today. On the side, I traded in my tool belt and power tools for a sewing machine and laser cutter and began designing and constructing handbags and accessaries. My hopes are to create progressive and edgy designs that differ from traditional handbags. I laser cut patterns into the leather (my favorite material), to make each piece original and unique. I love the idea of marrying digital fabrication with traditional sewing. I absolutely love sewing, whether it be handbags or my own wardrobe. My patterns are influenced by the tribal aesthetics of the desert southwest with a strong presence of geometry and symmetry. dubsyLEE is an extension of DubsyDesign, a small design firm created by my boyfriend and I.  Additional to fashion, we focus on film, set design, graphic design and architecture. http://dubsydesign.com/dubsylee
