When was a little girl, I used to make clothes for my sketches using chocolate and candy wrappers that I collected. I already knew by then that Fashion design would be the path I wanted to follow.
Art has always been a big part of my life; I think I got that from my dad. The very first book he showed me was the one from the Louvre Museum, that was the begining of my artistic adventure. I can't live without drawing & painting.
I also love little details, I believe that details make the difference in everything we create. I get very inspired by nature, I find flowers and trees fascinating. I'm always eager to learn about different cultures, they inspire me in different ways.
I have a passion for textiles, I can spend hours in a fabric store. I also enjoy flea markets, vintage stores, art shows, and nature.
Besides being a Fashion & illustrator, I'm also an educator. I graduated from the Fashion Design program at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles, California.
