Born and raised in Gulfport, Mississippi, JC has a southern charm and stars in her eyes. Her experience as a performer in college and work with community theater blossomed into a love of vintage clothing and a passion for costume design, which eventually led to earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Costume Design and Theatrical Hair and Makeup. For the past ten years, JC has designed and dressed many actors for the St. Louis Theatre companies: The Black Rep, Opera Theatre of St.Louis, Winter Opera St. Louis, The Muny, Hot City, Upstream, Mustard Seed at Fontbonne University, St.Louis Actors Studios, St.Louis Shakespeare Co., UMSL and Clayton High. JC has become one of St. Louis’ known artisans and was recognized as such by seven nominations to date for Outstanding Costume Design by the Kevin Kline awards. Any production, large or small, in need of a costume designer, wardrobe stylist, theatrical hair and makeup artist, or locating the perfect look can point to a touch of magic with JC.
