A little about me….
As long as I can remember, I’ve had a healthy addiction to the arts; from fashion to photography to food, and everything in between. I love it all! After working as a Dental Professional for 10 years, I decided to pursue a more creative career in the arts. You can read more about why I left the practice here. In 2011 I completed my Bachelors of Fine Arts at Columbia College Chicago. My focus was apparel design and production. But, I also focused my studies on graphic, as well as jewelry design.
Isn’t that Sew, the blog was born in June of 2012. You can read about the origin of the blog and the name here. In August of 2013 I launched my very own line of jewelry, Isn’t that Sew Handmade. I worked with copper, brass, and upcycled genuine leather to create truly unique, geometric jewelry. I am not entirely sure that I will continue to sell my pieces, but…I would love to make you a custom piece if your interested! Just send me a note. In May of 2014 I decided to refocus my content and built the new Isn’t that Sew site, where you are visiting today!
I currently work full-time as a professional apparel designer. I specialize in athletic apparel and dye sublimation. I work for a small, family owned business based in New Zealand and I do everything from product development, pattern making, custom design, marketing, website development, to production. Thanks for visiting Isn’t that Sew, I hope you enjoy your stay!
