Eve lives in Brooklyn now. But her life history is richly global. Eve learned the meaning of chic from her Milanese Aunt. Her American grandma was a couture sewist . She eschewed a fine arts degree to marry and building a family together with her husband Don, in South Africa.
In 2001 the family moved to New York just before 9/11/ and have been there since. It is here that the idea of More Than Just Figleaves was born.
A self trained sewist, Eve transferred her artistic skills and knowledge of painting to a sewing machine instead of paints and a canvas. Now her children are grown, she sews her couture pieces at home in Brooklyn.
She has six children and three grandchildren and enjoys spending time with her family during her spare time.
