"Striving to create "The Classic"
Lefie recently graduated with honors from The University of Illinois at Chicago with a BDes in Industrial Design. While in school, Lefie was a member of UIC IDSA, the UIC Honors College, and the UIC Campus Housing Staff. She also co-founded and is a former President of a successful university printmaking club in Chicago called "The Print Mongers," where she organized tutorials and exhibits for printmaking at the Zhou B. Art Center and nationally-renowned Gallery 400 in Chicago. She was in the top ten graduating seniors of UIC's Industrial Design program to be nominated for an IDSA Merit Scholarship, and she received the Peter Langmar Memorial Award upon graduating.
She has always been obsessed with learning new modes of creation, and she began experimenting with innumerable art and design disciplines at a young age: portrait drawing, sewing, cartooning, oil painting, acrylic painting, architectural modeling, watercolor painting, collaging, glassblowing, textile design, printmaking, mural-painting, machine knitting, furniture re-furbishing, skateboard-making... the list goes on!
