I'm a fashion design educator with 7+ years teaching college aged students at a renowned art and design college.
The highlight of my career thus far is the publication of a textbook authored and illustrated by me called, Surface Design for Fabric and published by Bloomsbury Publications. It has been well received and has even become a part of the required curriculum in some of the top fashion design programs throughout the United States and England.
I began sewing as a young girl under the guidance of my grandmother, first learning quilting techniques eventually graduating to making clothes for my dolls and Barbies and then for myself and my friends. I believe that it is never too soon or too late a new skill.
