How it all started...
Being a Fashion Designer for the last 15 years, has opened my eyes to the possibilities of Canvas Art and Fashion. To tell you the truth, fashion is a form of art, that when applied to fabric becomes an eye catching conversation piece. When I combine the two it becomes a new genre. For years, I have taught summer classes to the youth and always brought the 2 worlds together.
Come to think about it. Not only did I learn fashion from those in the United States but I was very much inspired by my Sierra Leonean, West African culture.
More to come....
