My style of design is very playful, bright, and colorful. I always want my pieces to be fun- to stand out. Color and shape are a huge part of my inspiration; there are so many ways to create a unique silhouette with basic shapes. I love to see how different colors can play with each other and create contrast and add dimension to a piece. There is so much freedom when designing shoes and handbags, I love being able to express my style with each new design. Each piece can be completely different from the last. I love trying out new processes and experimenting with techniques like hand-stitching, embroidery, beading, inlay/overlay, quilting, print and pattern making, and hand painting.
I have always had an interest in art. I tried every media in high school; I started with the basics like painting and drawing, but I soon got into sculpture, mixed-media, writing, collaging, digital rendering, and even film. More than art, I have always loved shoes (it was even my first word). It wasn't until my junior year of high school that I realized that I could pursue both of these loves to create a passion!
