Design training/schooling: "I studied printmaking/fine art in college and took classes at my local community college in pattern making and draping."Strengths as a designer: "My strengths are that I am unwavered by trends, I follow my own design aesthetics, I am not afraid of color and texture, and I design for all women." Influences: "I look a lot at vintage clothing, as well as old movies just as much now as I did in my teens, when I started designing."
