My passion in life is DESIGN — starting with my love for ART at a young age. These two loves have shaped my career, which started at USA Today newspaper, then Essence magazine, Princeton University, a design firm and the State of New Jersey. I received a M.S. from Pratt Institute and B.F.A. from Howard University. Along the way, I have met incredible people and have expanded my design skills to create Artfully Made Designs! My vision to merge artistic design with creative problem-solving to produce original designed work.
