What influenced you to get into design? Did you have any mentors?
- I have always been very creative, from childhood, all through my life. Drawing, painting, wood work, stained glass design, knitting, and crochet. It is almost as if there was no other choice. I never even considered a non-creative/design career. I always wanted to work in the fashion industry, but it was more luck than anything ells that I landed at Erickson Beamon in London. And there I found my mentor in Vicki Sarge, the other half of Erickson Beamon.
