2007-2010 Studied Interior Design at Marymount University
1982-1986 B.S., Fashion Design, Howard University
I was bitten by the design bug at the age of 8 when I would spend summer afternoons watching my grandmother make patterns out of newspaper and create garments for my mother and I. My mother would also make us semi-matching outfits and I fondly remember shopping for fabric in my hometown of NY and totally being mesmarized by all of the dazzling fabric colors and textures. I sewed my first skirt, sans pattern, at 8 yrs old.....it was either royal blue or purple velvet with some interesting trim remnant and a zipper! The fit wasn't bad either. My passion for all things artistic never waned eventhough I let what I believed was my reality take over for some moments. I am a designer, an artist and a closet musician, and through the venues of interior design, clothing design and jewelry design, I have freed myself to express and create without inhibition. Through this process I have come in contact with some of the world's most beautiful and giving spirits - something I intend to do for the rest of my life.
I was torn for a moment in wondering which area of design I would concentrate my efforts and settled on two of the three as they are complementary. My company offers full services in both areas.
