Overview

After obtaining a bachelors in Fashion Design from the University of Rhode Island and Masters of Fine Arts in Fashion Design from the Academy of Arts University, I have worked for over 10 years as a design/sewing instructor, fashion designer, fashion illustrator, garment pattern maker, and technical designer.
I've taught children, teenagers and adults how to create garments from conception to a three dimensional product. My tutoring strategy is to encourage students to embrace their creativity and confidently express themselves through design. Creativity development may include pulling inspiration from nature, pop culture, society, world culture and inner self. Lessons plans are modified according to each student wants and needs. The lessons are designed to create an interactive and fun learning platform in which students can successfully achieve their goals. I look forward to helping you learn and accomplish your creative goals!

· Sewing · In studio I love TJ teaching style. She is vety hands on and brings an energy into learning that I love. She quelled my fears about my the domestic side and now I can sew a button, hem pants and even repair a rip. I look forward to learning more through her courses. Now that I have gotten the basics I trust TJ will take me to the next level with ease.

· Fashion Design · In home Feeling like I could take on the world of fashion!!!! Wanted to learn how to sew just so I could put together my own ensembles and save a couple of bucks but am now interested in furthering my education with TJ ( the sewin DJ ) to share the art. She had helped me work on the skill but more importantly has shot my confidence threw the roooooffff!!!!
