This week I turn thirty and I am happy to note that it is off to an auspicious start!  I just received a great mention of my costume design for New Chamber Ballet in today’s NYT. Below are some rough sketches of my design ideas for the above ballet, which premiered this weekend.   One day soon I will convert them into a watercolor of the finished design.
