Artist's Statement:

As a costume designer and illustrator/artist, I am passionate about telling stories with color, line and texture.  When creating a two-dimensional rendering of a design, I delight in implementing qualities of textiles as they relate to the human body in the form of movement, drape and silhouette.  I love discovering characters and building worlds through the garments they wear and the cycle of collaboration, research, creation and presentation that a costume designer gets to enjoy.  Effective communication and presenting a clear and complete costume design to my director are paramount to me when taking on a project.  I constantly strive to employ creative problem solving and to foster a positive, guiding and supportive relationship with my creative and technical team.
