I feel I need to share a bit of my history to lead you into the newest phase of my work. I, or my parents rather, knew I was destined to be an artist since I was about 2. I can still picture the first ‘fashionista bear’ I drew for my mother around that time. (man I wish I had a copy to share with you right now!) Long story short, I went from painting, to (almost) cosmetology, to hair & makeup styling for weddings, then to Photography! But from about the age of 14, I KNEW I would be a fashion designer one day! I learned all I could about FIDM, it was my DREAM! Buuuut once I realized how costly a degree in fashion could be, (and I being only 14 with no income), I let that dream slowly fade away. It’s been close to my mind ever since, but it had to take a back seat for a while. Have I mentioned that I have 3 kids under the age of 5?!!?!! It took me about 4 years to finally figure out how to invest in my dreams while still being home with my babies. Juggling my role as ‘Mom’ & ‘Business Owner’ has taken me a long time to figure out. SO what you will be seeing in my work, as of late, is a combination of the two. Fashion & Photography. I have a STRONG LOVE for the two, so I couldn’t be more excited about this work!!!!! Within the past few weeks of starting this little adventure, some great opportunities have come my way. One being the opportunity to work with one of the gorgeous gorgeous girls of The Girls With Glasses.
