New Venture!!

Hello All,

In my last post, I stated that I had some exciting news to share with you.  For those of you who have been following my blog, you know that I am an independent fashion designer.  Well, there is also a new website, which is an online trunk show that makes it easier for independent designers to create their garments, and do what they love, which is designing great clothing.

The name of the website is called is called Trunkist.  I designed a dress through this site, and I'm happy to say that my dress is now on sale! The dress, the Bandeau Skater Dress, is inspired from the 1950s and Rockabilly style.

Here is the link to my dress:

I'm so excited about this new venture.  Fashion is fun, but it takes a lot of hard work to get your product out there, and I'm glad that sites like Trunkist helps independent designers like me make great products for you.

Until Next Time!

New Artwork

Hello All,

With teaching, doing freelance gigs, and revamping my website, I haven't had time to talk to all of you.  I feel I have a great audience, so I can share what I have been doing lately.  I had been feeling down a bit with certain things in my life.  Most of the time, when there is a circumstance that I cannot control, I think about it to the point that it starts to stress me out.  I know this is not good, and I am working on that.  So, when this circumstance occurred, I prayed about it, and instead, I went back to an old medium that I have not used since college, watercolor painting.

I started looking at Pinterest (my favorite site), and I started looking at watercolor fashion illustrations for inspiration.  Afterwards, I started creating my own.  Besides watercolor paints, I use gouache as well.  In addition to watercolor painting, I have been continuing to use markers to create my fashion illustrations.  This is what I have been creating so far:

Watercolor and Gouache

November 9

I'm currently working on this painting

This is still a work in progress.  I also have a pattern for a skirt that I'm still working on.

This skirt is also a work in progress.  I have to finish both of these projects soon.  I'm excited about the skirt because it is something that I have always envisioned, but now that the weather has turned very cold, I may have to wait until Spring to wear it.

Also, I will be sharing some good news with you soon.  I am so excited about this new venture in my life, and I can't wait to share it with you.

Well, now I have to prepare for class tomorrow.

Until Next Time!
