"Thus we travel the world over to find the beautiful,we must carry it with us or we find it not" Ralph Waldo Emerson
"A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you". Brigitte Bardot
I have always been a creative person earning a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from Cornell University and a Masters Degree in Art from Eastern Illinois University. I also have formal training in costume design from Temple University and worked in the costume shop at the University of Illinois. Being that my expertise is in painting I enjoy painting my own designs on fabric which has lead me to design my Hand Painted Couture line.
My services include custom fitted gowns for any occasion especially High Fashion and Bridal.
I am doing limited TFP/CD with experienced photographers specialising in High Fashion and Bridal. I am focusing mainly in Editorial style photography.
My goal is to get well known in the fashion community and to keep doing what I do best which is create art and have a great time doing it.
I am available nights and weekends. Some of my gowns are available for rental, please contact me for prices.
May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.
