I started drawing fashion at about 8 or 9 years. I would use my paper dolls and awkwardly trace around them. There were fashion pages in the Archie comic books and I would trace over Betty and Veronica also. This is how I learned to draw. I spent hours doing this every day. Sometimes I would find the most wonderful illustrations in magazines and copy them. The covers of patterns were other great sources of inspiration for fashion. How I wished I could take one of those great big catalogs home from the fabric store with me!
Looking back at the process is so much fun. NEVER in a million years would I have believed those hours so many years ago would bring me to this place right now! I still love drawing and even more sharing!
