I have been drawing the fashion figure since before I knew what it was. Growing up, my mother enjoyed sewing garments for herself using designer sewing patterns. I would always try to copy the illustrations on the package. I was also a Barbie fanatic. The packaging included beautiful illustrations demonstrating what Barbie could do, or line ups of fashions you could buy for her. I was obsessed with them.
I landed my first real job after art school, creating original t-shirt designs, I learned so much. I moved onto sleepwear, party supplies, toys, packaging and stationery. Eventually after becoming a mom I began focusing on original designs and working freelance. Currently I create designs for, phone cases, greeting cards, apparel, gifts and packaging.
