I have been sewing for as long as I can remember. I come from three generations of seamstresses, so you can say it's in my blood. I went to a two year college and received an Associates Degree for Fashion Design and Merchandising. I am proficient in Fashion Illustration, I am a pattern maker, I can do alterations, and most of all I am a Designer. I have children and they where my designs. I have worked with a lot of different people, so I have a well rounded personality.

Drawing

I have been drawing all my life, but I got professional training at the High School For Art and Design in New York, also at a college for fashion Design and Merchandising. That and over 30 years of illustration.

Sewing

I come from Three generations of seamstresses, and I have an Associates degree in fashion Design and merchandising. I have been working under a New York based designer now for 2 years. I also make patterns, sew, and design for my own clothing line.
