I am a dental hygienist turned designer. I have always had a love of art and science. Science helped
pay the bills until I was fortunate enough to follow my creative dreams.
I have a B.S. in Dental hygiene and a B.S.in Fashion Design & Merchandising from West Virginia University.
I also studied abroad in London learning creative drape. After
working as a Children's Buyer, I decided to move on once again. I received my M.S.in Integrated Marketing Communications at WVU,
enabling me to become a college professor. I love color, 1950's style, and propaganda art. I try to have these things come alive in my designs.
My other interests include costuming, video & tabletop gaming, and Legos. I love to travel and have been
fortunate to visit various locations throughout Europe & Japan.
