I have been a creator for as long as I can remember.
Sewing from a young age, I have always enjoyed working with clothing. This love has evolved into a sharp design skill that comes from years of experience costuming large groups of actors and extras in a variety of formats, embracing period, stylized and contemporary scripts.
I have the skills to collaborate with you to make any world imaginable.
As a Costume Designer, my skills begin with an understanding of how clothing is put together. This is the basis of my design career and continues to benefit my work in each and every new production. As a former backstage and on set crew member, I understand the need for efficient and effective methods of creating costumes for the realities of filming.
My deep knowledge and appreciation of fashion history, combined with an aptness to draft and alter historical patterns, has enabled me to recreate specific silhouettes. Not only do I love creating new pieces for productions, but I also recognize the potential in using existing contemporary garments for period specific styling.
I have extensive experience working within a costume team and also leading it. I believe that costumers do this work because we enjoy it; it's in our blood to design, fabricate and build. The space we work in should be a welcoming one full of camaraderie and cooperation. Each person is a valued team member and when I am in the company of people who are here to create, I come alive.
