Artist is how I think of myself, costumes are my medium. I like the realm of the imagination, symbolism, and originality. I think of the theatre as a place to share stories that go beyond words, pictures, music, and dance. As a theatrical professional I am able to draw on all artistic forms of expression in my tool belt to combine and tell a story more completely than any single medium could hope to do. For this reason I have dabbled in many art fields but always come home to the costume shop.
