I am inspired by the luster, fantasy and sentiment of life. I have found that textiles are a way to construct new and exciting pieces to envelop the world with beauty. I am interested in creating materials that are filled with color, texture and detail. I am eager to acquire experience in the field that will further my knowledge of textiles, new techniques and allow me to push myself creatively.
Seeking a job in the textile and bridal industry that will provide challenges and creative growth.
