For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed being creative, and was constantly making huge messes with all my projects around the house. I spent my time painting, drawing, stamping, knitting, beading, making soap, and creating jewelry, basically everything that wasn’t sewing. In fact, I was determined not to learn how to sew. Then when I was in junior/senior in high school, I came to the conclusion that I wanted to be a fashion designer. So off I went to San Francisco, and earned my Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts with a major in Fashion Design. Really my passion lies in illustrating and designing (sketching, patternmaking, grading, etc), but I came to love sewing and learned most of my sewing and construction techniques in college. After college, I took a break from the fashion scene, but now I find myself wanting to be right back in the thick of it.
