Her interest in designing had her juggling both senior year in High School and training at The French Fashion Academy in New York City.  She attended Parsons School of Design and was shortly introduced to the music industry.  At the same time, she pursued her passion for painting.  Her collaboration with Pioneer Hip Hop Photographer, Al Pereria, landed her paintings in magazines with recording artists, Schoolly D, MC Ren, Yoyo, Tevin Campbell, Wu Tang Clan, and more.
