About this pro
Artesia is a very talented seamstress who has an extensive back knowledge of fashion and clothing production. She is super easy to work with and her craftsmenahip is meticulous. I would hire her for any project!Sep 19, 2016
I worked with Artesia on some custom tote bags and purses for my brand last fall and they came out gorgeous. Artesia is lovely to work with and the quality of her work is spot on. I could not recommend her enough!Aug 14, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It really depends on the client's request as each project varies.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After our initial conversation via phone and/or e-mail, I like to meet at a local coffee shop for an in-person meeting to discuss the potential client's concept and ideas. From there, I like to start small depending on the project at hand and upon approval of my work then we proceed to taking it a step further.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I went to Spelman College and graduated in 2010 with a degree in Mathematics but I am currently attending the Savannah College of Art and Design to earn a degree in Fashion Design. In March 2014, I was a RAW featured artist showcasing handmade accessories, pillowcases and pillows. The following month I received the Most Creative award at the EcoFab Trash Couture Recycled Runway for a garment created from everyday usable items. I have participated in the Summer Intensive Studies program at Parson’s in New York, NY and excelled in the sewing instruction from middle school to college. I have been doing freelance work as a seamstress since June of 2015 and I've met some amazing people along the way.
