During my art history classes I became intrigued by the engineering techniques used by the clothing designers of the 17th, 18th,and 19th centuries. I began sewing during childhood, and made custom designs to help support me during my college years. I continue to hold a fascination for the historical clothing periods, while enjoying the creative process.
