"I am a product of trade schools." It's as simple as that! Growing up in the 70's, if you wanted to learn a profession, thats what you did. I studied industrial dressmaking techniques, tailoring, and then returned a few years later to study fashion design, where I met my millinery teacher Donald Wasson. He turned a passion I already had for hats into something I could actually see doing. He inspired me to create hats with joy, and that has continued with me to this day. As one of my favorite sayings goes, " Do it with love in your heart."
