I'm an 43 year old actress, costume designer and busy working mother of 3 teenage girls. I've wanted to design in fashion since I began modeling at the age of 12 (I'm 6 feet tall, BTW!). I love reading magazines and online style forums. I sew when I have time but also love researching, coll-aging ideas and creative imagery . My birth father is an artist and retired professor and birth mother is a musician and singer turned marketing and promotions executive. I have a twin brother.
