When I was young, my father was a lieutenant colonel in the Marine Corps and was deployed for extended periods of time. I spent most of my childhood with my mom and younger sister, where I gained a passion for music, for the arts, and for nature. I learned how to sew, craft jewelry, and crochet, among other skills. These developed into a love of costumes and clothing that has allowed me to deploy many skills into the hyper feminine, floral, and extravagant design aesthetic that I present to this day. From watching my mother and sister express their femininity and power while also observing the pride and honor my dad demonstrated during his service, I have learned to create a unique fantasy of a woman that exudes confidence and is effortlessly glamorous while also promoting female power.
