Of course traditionally, I took classes both here in Philadelphia and New York presented by different product lines and celebrity artists, each class demonstrating different categories in artistic occasional perspectives including: runway, period, editorial looks, photography, bridal, and everyday etc. more importantly though, my talent and skills were built in many ways, look by look, piece by piece, face by face.
I was mentored for years by experienced Philadelphia artists who I admire. Successful experimentation in many different scenarios, for many different occasions on women in all maturity levels. The study of color theory is also very important in the perspective of my work.
Quite frankly, I have experienced what works and what doesn’t…
