What do you do? When I'm not working I'm usually doing something creative whether it's web design or writing but my passion is sewing and clothing design. It's hard to describe the satisfaction you feel when you've made something wearable for yourself or someone else.
Job or Hobby? Right now I am working at a place called Black Walnut Teaching Gardens with this amazing woman who owns the place. It's hard work but the flowers and the other plants often remind me of pretty fabrics, have you ever seen a pink poppy? The petals are like ruffles on a dress, beautiful.
What inspires you to create? I find my inspiration to create in many different places. Sometimes it's in other pieces of clothing that I see but I think it is mostly in vintage fashions. Right now I am really into reusing or "upcycling" vintage fashions and fabrics. Famous last words: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think it can be really nerve wracking to stand behind your work, but if you think it is beautiful other people will too.
