She says, “My mother says I was born with a crayon in my hand. Art was my focus all through school, including in college. I majored in Studio Art and Creative Writing at Indiana University. I initially thought I would be a painting professor but life took me in a different direction. My mother made most of my clothing as a child and as a young adult I began making clothing and costumes for myself. People started taking notice and asked me to make costumes for them for Halloween, and now it has evolved into a full time career where I offer High Fashion gowns and dresses, unique swimwear, boudoir, bridal and high end costuming.”
“My first runway show was over 8 years ago. I sent in a submission to a runway show in Bloomington Indiana and I was accepted to show one design. After the event, I remember tearing up thinking that it was the ceiling of my career as an artist. Thankfully I was mistaken. Since then I have done over 25 runways and gallery exhibits. I’m internationally published in the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, and published in several U.S. based magazines as well."
