I know how hard it is to do what you love because you lack the motivation, doubt your abilities, struggle with committing to do it, have uncertainties of the steps you need to take and you're wrestling with poor time management. The ability to create as an artist - in various craft forms - is a gift. This is our special gift that we have a lifetime to continually unwrap and develop. Come journey along with me! This moment is now...
Anything worth saying should be said and done well, and with great designs and effective communication that can be accomplished.
After studying graphic design in high school - through engaging projects, participation in competitions and creating designs for classmates I have been designing ever since. Throughout high school school and college I have been creating designs for commission ranging from printed and digital graphics, branding and advertising - t-shirt designs, graphic illustration, advertisements, logos and more. I enjoy the design process from initial inspiration to the final product.
I am meticulous about the details and professional quality and I'm very intentional about communicating the message well. The initial process is hand sketches and/or images of inspiration followed by drafts and communication to make sure we have a great design we both can be proud of.
FASHION - Body art that brings an outward expression to an inner expression. Neither can be entirely accomplished without the other.
In 2013, I completed my BFA in Fashion Design, during this time I learned how interrelated graphic design and fashion design are. From the advertising to the creation of your own graphics and prints for your designs, to the illustrated collections with the technical flats and the mood boards with your color palette, inspiration and insight into your collection.
The combination of graphic design and sewing have forever changed how I see fashion. I have been challenging myself to take the seemingly impossible ideas and make them because I can translate the sketch into an actual wearable piece.
Although I am using a different canvas in fashion, I love that fact that no canvas is alike, each body is different and uniquely designed. Which means each piece I create will never be the same and gives the wearer an opportunity to add their own expression by simply being themselves not morphing into a branded mold.
In the near future I am working towards producing my own brand collections for men, women and children.
