Sewing SuperSHEro - Kechantra Ward

Can you tell us a little bit about the moment you realized you were an artist?

I’ve been artistic and creative pretty much all of my life. I hand sewed my first pillow at 5 years old out of an old t shirt, collected rocks to paint them, and made jewelry.

How did you learn your necessary skills?

I would always watch my mother sew growing up. She taught me to sew by hand until I got my first machine in middle school. After graduating high school, I attended Kent State University and got my bachelors in Fashion Design. I also learned a lot from studying abroad and “YouTube University”.
