Teaching Philosophy:
I tell my students: “You are only confined by the walls you build yourself”. Therefore, I say, there are NO walls! If you can envision it, then believe it, and it can be. If you apply yourself and put the effort and work in, then the sky is the limit. And I will encourage them to contribute their own ideas and allow freedom with certain projects; class discussion is essential. I try to be flexible and responsive to their questions, and most of all I want them to enjoy the process!

Industry Experience/Recent Exhibitions:
Cathy recently became one of the newest additions to MTV’s hit show “Wild ‘N Out” wardrobe department. She had clients ranging from BET, Macy’s, T-Mobile, Def Jam and a host of others.
