A little about me...
I've always had a passion for fashion and art. I was born and raised in Ohio and have been drawing since since could I could pick up a pencil. I cultivated my sewing and artistic skills through my local 4-H program. I attended the University of Cincinnati’s fashion design program to further develop my love of drawing, sewing, fashion, and textiles. After completing my bachelor’s degree in fashion, I moved across the country to Los Angeles.
After working in the LA fashion industry for several years as a technical designer, I decided I needed a more creative role in the fashion industry. I enrolled in the Textile and Surface Design program at the Otis College of Design. While there, I revived my love of drawing, painting, and dyeing textiles. My current textile collections begin with hand painting and drawing techniques with gouache, watercolors, fabric dyes, pastels, etc. and then enhancing them in Photoshop and Illustrator. I continue to blend traditional textile designs with modern mediums and elements to bring a fresh approach to my work. I am constantly developing and evolving my signature look of melding naturally fluid designs with textures and geometric shapes.
