Craft(s) of Choice: sewing, knitting, jewelry, painting, i bounce around often always trying new things

I was born into a crafty family so it was always around me growing up and very encouraged, so of course I joined in, I can still remember my first hot glue gun burn.

As I grew up drawing, painting crafting etc. seeing it only on the paper wasn’t enough for me I wanted it to come to life, to be able to interact with it give it personality.

This was at the ever-important age in a child’s life that all you live for is Saturday morning cartoons and comic books, so I had my answer become an animator! This became my obsession for a few years I would draw and draw and draw to get ready then I did some research and found out that it was way more drawing then I wanted to do, so I put the idea aside for a little and just focused on improving my skills. Finally in middle school a light came on and I had my answer fashion design was the way to go. I practiced sewing sketching and studying fashion as best I could from my small hometown in south central PA. When it came time for college I was off to Philadelphia to get all the skills I needed to be a designer. Now I am a full time designer with a major company by day and a crafter/accessory designer by night and weekend, I live for crafting I’ll never give it up.
