apparel industry field trips
I grew up on a farm in Genesee, ID,where the remote location fostered my creativity. I spent time making clothes for myself and my sister as well as dolls, barbies, and a few pets. At the completion of a double major in Apparel and Costume Design and Clothing, Textiles,and Design from the University of Idaho in 1993, I moved to Portland, OR to start my career in the apparel industry. I worked for Nike for 3-1/2 years in various roles starting as a sample sewer and leaving as a product developer. In 1997, I started as an Assistant Designer at adidas. Six months later, I was promoted to Women’s Designer and continued to work in many different product categories. After five years with adidas spending the last year as a Senior Designer, I decided to try working at a small company to balance my skill set. I moved to Hanna Andersson to work as the Accessory and Baby Apparel Designer. In August 2002, my daughter, Elsie, was born, and it was time to pursue a freelance career. My freelance clients have included Cool Sets, Royal Robbins, Asics America, and Electric Foxy. I had a son, Ewan in 2006. I am based in Portland, OR, but make frequent trips home to Genesee and to the UI campus.
I started teaching Adobe Illustrator at the UI during the summer of 2007. I have added a few more classes in the following years. I now teach FCS223: Evaluation of Apparel and Textiles online in both the Spring and Fall. I also take a field trip to Los Angeles in the fall to explore the LA/Orange County apparel industry and retail markets.
