I love fabrics and usually start my process there. I always choose the fabrics that speak to me. When I see certain prints or colors it sparks something in my mind. Growing up I always had a vivid imagination and can drum up a story in a heartbeat. Feeling the fabric, examining the contents and overall visual impact inspires what story I choose to tell. I also get inspired by women all around me. Some I know and some I don't. I observe them and some I'm able to talk to them to learn their story. I pull inspiration from that as well. What they went through, how they overcame,how they move and respond. I'm able put a visual image through clothing from an emotion that I experienced wether personal, a shared experience or from the textile itself.
