Bio

I grew up a craft kid in southern Minnesota and was sewing by 5 years old. Ever since, I have seized every opportunity to continue to build my skills and experiences in the world of costumes. I earned a BFA in Theatre Design & Technology with an emphasis in costumes, which opened my eyes to the world of Costume Design and Pattern Making.

I grew up a craft kid in southern Minnesota and was sewing by 5 years old. Ever since, I have seized every opportunity to continue to build my skills and experiences in the world of costumes. I earned a BFA in Theatre Design & Technology with an emphasis in costumes, which opened my eyes to the world of Costume Design and Pattern Making. I have worked in film production, full time in a costume shop, as a freelance designer and maker of custom pieces, and I even got to go on an international tour with Grover and the rest of the Sesame Street Gang. I recently rounded out my qualifications by earning an MFA in Theatre (Costume Emphasis), which really made me discover how much I love teaching and passing on the ability to create.

Throughout my career I have been lucky enough to teach in many different circumstances: lecture halls to costume shops, backstage during a show, and (my favorite) teaching one-on-one. I love discovering how different brains tick and figuring out the best way to communicate the information. Sewing is one of those skills that once things start clicking, the sky is the limit.

So much of art and so much of creating is being able to see 'it', whatever 'it' is in that moment. Through thousands of hours of practice, research, studying, creating, and critique (with insightful teachers), I have learned the questions to ask and the statements to make to encourage growth in learning and creating.
