Artistic Statement of Work:
The job of a costume designer is ever changing and one is never sure when one will be called upon to be a visual artist, a historian, a psychologist, a fine artist or a sociologist. A designer must embrace all of these roles to service the artistic integrity of the production, the vision of the director, and to portray a character through costume. These goals can be met through an open mind and a collaborative work environment
