1. Tell us a little about yourself and how long you have been illustrating for.
I got my first set of oil pastels at age 4 and have been drawing ever since, but I’ve been illustrating professionally for 2 years. My specialty is costume design for film and television.

2. What are some of your fashion inspirations?
Vintage clothing has been a great love of mine. I love every decade. My greatest wish is to be a time traveler! That’s why I love costume design: it’s an opportunity to go back in time.
