"I've always loved creating in several mediums of art. I started designing fashion jewelry and accessories and found my passion.
Working with textures and unique materials gives me the fuel to design. I get a vision and I have to execute it. Then sketching the design keeps me in line. I started to learn how to sew which I dove right into the Envision Collection. I already had garment designs in my head and now I had the ability to create them myself.
I am fortunate to have done so many great opportunities. Even more, I'm thankful for all of the people who have believed in my passion. Thank you for being a part of my fashion journey."
