2. What was the inspiration for your career route?
Ever since I was a young girl, I always dreamed of creating a world filled with fantasy, mystical characters and creative bliss. Black Mohawk is that dream come true and so much more. I owe the seed of creation for what I do in Black Mohawk to the inheritance of a lifetime’s worth of creativity from my grandmother, Marjorie Brock. She was an amazing, talented and artistic woman in her own right, and without her I would not be where I am today.
Black Mohawk was established a couple of years ago when I was specializing in body painting for various events. I then started designing and creating my own costumes for these events, and from there life escalated our vision to an unimaginable altitude.
