“My creative process was inspired by the video game, The Sims. I wouldn’t even play the game, I just enjoyed making houses and rooms with different themes and colors and prints and floors. It seems silly, but that game is how I became interested in interior design. My life changed drastically after surviving a life-threatening [...]

“My youngest daughter is a sophomore in college, which means that I now have time for myself. RISD CE offers certificate programs that fit my budget and schedule.

“I grew up in Providence and wanted nothing more than to attend RISD as a student, which I did as an undergraduate in the early 2000s. RISD really is a special world. When I was a student, I remember being immersed in this world–being physically located in Providence, but also as a portal into [...]

“My journey to RISD began when I walked in the apparel design classroom as a visitor. I then took the Upcycled Couture: Refashioning Garments course offered through RISD Summer Programs and went into it with little knowledge of sewing. When I left, I had the skills to sew by myself. Every day I learned something [...]

“RISD is a part of the creative pantheon. Rhode Island School of Design raises the eyebrows of people inside and outside the artist community.
