My career has been focused on hand-illustrated embellishments, graphics, construction detail, and fit. Armed with my personal experience of construction and sewing from a young age, I am able to sculpt artwork in such a way it gives the customer confidence and celebrates her figure.
With experience from photography, styling, and post production to graphic design for textile prints, marketing and brand identity, I have the ability envision the full life cycle of a brand, grounded in lifestyle design. I can adapt to any environment and style esthetic.
