Meet Deborah

I have been with the University since 2002. I discovered my love of Theatre in High school and pursued the art of Theatre at the University of Cincinnati, as a student in Design, Art and Architecture. While studying and working in the College-Conservatory of Music's Theatre department; under the guidance of W.K. Weaks. I’ve had a unique experience at U of R in addition to working with work-study students, being able to work as Adjunct Costume designer for several department productions, as well as School of Music productions, and mentoring Student Designers along with Design faculty. I get the unique experience with students while teaching them the Art of costuming through skill training and three dimensional building in the shop daily. The students get to see the visual transformation from page to stage process from the costume perspective. When not at Redlands I do freelance Design work throughout Southern California.
