Meet the Maker Series
What inspires you?
There are a few things that inspire me. My daughter, Queen, inspires me to grow spiritually. My clients inspire me to study more because there are too many unanswered questions and more dots I am assigned to connect. Elders inspire me to pause and listen. My body inspires me to be thankful, move, rest, and to heal. My friends inspire me to remember who I am. Lastly, every earth element inspires me to look within and to this earth for answers and understanding.

How long have you been creating?
All my life. I began with paper dolls, then paints, charcoals. Middle school gave way to fabric use. By the time I entered college, I utilized it all. As life Ebb & Flowed, I began making money from clothing design. Now, design is in everything I do, including branding and experience. Love guides the experience part. I make sure every person feels loved and special around me.

Not believing in my purpose. Allowing others to limit my self-worth and self-belief.
