About Katy

I am beginning a new career in costume design after completing two years of study in the fiber department at the Maryland Institute College of Art. I am also the mother of two teenage boys and an accomplished professional besides being a more newly minted "creative." I know how to develop a structured curriculum due to my many years as a trainer in the affordable housing field. I also know how to respond to a student's personal goals and interests. I taught teens at the Nanjing Language Institute in China, and more recently in a workshop on T-shirt shredding at Artisphere in Arlington, VA. I am skilled at sewing, costume design, knitting, crocheting, dying and embroidery among other things.

My approach would be to listen closely to students and parents, propose a structure for some initial sessions, adjust as necessary, and check-in and adjust along the way. My goal would be to make sessions enjoyable and satisfying along a path of growth.

I love what I do, and I enjoy encouraging that spark in others.

Please contact me for an initial discussion or interview.
