Growing up I loved to draw, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do when I was a child, but I knew I wanted to create. Entering high school, I was lucky enough to attend an art and design school where I began to focus on fashion design. Designing clothing gave me the opportunity to create in another dimension. I was drawn to focus my last two years at FIT in knitwear because I am able to further push the limitations on what I make, beginning the process with the creation of my own fabric.
