My designs are reflections of my emotions and a way to express what I feel in the moment. Getting to know the person I am designing for is very important to me. Learning more about the person – my client – inspires me to create the best look for them. I am always looking for new sources for inspiration and experimenting with shapes, colors, and fabrics.
