Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
I am a Costume Designer from San Diego. I teach at a local university, and design and build costumes for them. I also try to work on my own projects, such as my Fairy Tale series of women's vests through my own wearable art business, Relished Artistry, or my personal map-making and cartography endeavors I do for fun. These include everything from wallpapers for one's desktop to crepe-paper display heads.

I have a vast collection of poses and rendering examples in my favorites collection that I am gathering as inspiration for my various costume designs and my personal artistic development practicing costume rendering. I sometimes favorite individual examples so I can link back to the artist's page. While most digital renderings are far too detailed and specific to be practical to actually illustrate in the costume design process (way too much time to execute), I've found that many works provide wonderful examples of stylistic ingenuity as well as conquering specific illustrative quandaries that I find inspirational for my own endeavors.

I also have a small sample of my own work on multiple shows and projects. More can be found on my portfolio sight linked below.

In the end, I feel it's not the renderings that are my particular artistic expression, but the costume that results from its use as a tool in the process. Costume Design is about what appears on stage with the collaboration of other designers, actors and technicians, not on the piece of paper. But creating a rendering that is both stylistically interesting and clear goes a LONG way to engendering faith, trust, and understanding in the collaborative theatre-making process. Learning how to draw and looking at the work of others is important.

So that's why I'm here. Thanks for letting me favorite your stuff!!! :)

Long John Silver
This rendering is for Grossmont College's original production of Treasure Island, for their Summer Theatre Conservancy program.  Adapted from the original novel, this production is unique in the sense that the many of the main characters are a different gender.  The function of many of the characters was changed, and the story became about the coming-of-age of a young girl instead of a young boy. 

This character doesn't have a peg leg--he has a prosthesis leg inspired by the work of another actor/designer named Chris Barlow, who played the role and built his own foam leg in England in 2011.  Information can be found about that here:

This rendering was done in pencil, then traced with Micron markers and cross-hatched, then scanned and manipulated in Photoshop to create textures and colors.

Captain Morgan
This rendering is for Grossmont College's original production of Treasure Island, for their Summer Theatre Conservancy program.  Adapted from the original novel, this production is unique in the sense that the many of the main characters are a different gender.  The function of many of the characters was changed, and the story became about the coming-of-age of a young girl instead of a young boy. 

This character is an example of something that shifted--instead of a male Captain Smollet who is hired by Dr. Livesay to help find the treasure, our female Captain Morgan is the authority figure at sea for our version.  Her tongue-in-cheek name is a direct reference to the brand of rum we all know. Since our show is a comedy, it works out perfectly.

Because Captain Morgan is female, our version of Treasure Island doesn't shy away from commenting on the challenges of being a female ship captain.  The entire pirate crew beneath her lives in fear of her, as the rumors that abound regarding her nefarious exploits keep them in check.  Every sailor seems to have a different story, and they keep getting comically more and more robust as the play progresses.
