MH: Currently working out of my garage :) Definitely not my ideal place but I'm trying to make the best of it! When I have the opportunity to re-locate my workstation it would be somewhere in Los Angeles. Exactly where in LA is still to be determined.
MH: SO MANY WAYS. Someday I have to reveal to the world the atrocities I designed as a younger kid. (okay maybe they aren't that bad) but when I was younger I drew mainly simple t-shirts and hoodies with logos and drawings on them. I was for whatever reason really into drawing cherries (I'm seriously embarrassed right now) and would put them on everything. Post-logo phase I was into very casual attire (think typical 90's/early 2000's outfits).
AND THEN I was drawing baby-doll looking garments with way too many design elements. I think I really had to over-do it to realize where I need to exercise restraint. And by the time I neared the end of high-school and early college I was starting to develop the style I have now. It was in its baby phases I things were not as intricate, but definitely more on the stylish/classic side of the spectrum. Now I like to try my best to create pieces that are balanced, interesting, visually appealing, and have lasting power. I've always been terrible about keeping up with trends, but rather take interest in new patterns, textures, and silhouettes. My style now is a mosh posh of what I find visually captivating.
MH: Reading this I instantly remembered when I was an all-day guest speaker to the art classes at a middle school. It's not entirely related to my career, more of an awesome bonus, but I really enjoyed communicating to younger kids about being persistent in attaining their goals. I felt really energized couldn't stop smiling after the day ended. And to this day I keep in communication with the student's who really enjoyed my speech or who are looking to pursue a career in the arts or design.
MH: Spreading my wings and flying out of the nest hahaha. I really need to move closer to LA because many of the people I work with are in the city, and there are more opportunities available to me out there. I'm only 40 mins - 1 hr away but it can be difficult to pull off last minute stunts as much as I would want to :(
MH: Eeee this is always so hard, I have a dream list! Okay I'll say... Kiera Knightly. I always go between her Amy Pohler and Natalie Portman, but Kiera is a pretty classy lady who I would be so excited to see wearing my work.
