Theater has always been a passion of mine since a young age. Make-up was an early focus and something that has been mainly self-taught. I enjoy fantastical make-up designs along with elaborate gore and horror make-up.
I taught high school English and Drama for seven years before I decided to return to graduate school to earn my masters' degree in Costume Design.
My experience as a drama director allowed me to have full control over the production but I really thrived when designing and pulling costumes.
My love of costume design began when I first altered and destroyed a princess Halloween costume. I was seven and had seen my first horror film. I covered my little princess dress in red lipstick and ketchup. I began designing outfits and skirts during adolescence and was self-taught until college.
