Mansie has been a creative visionary her entire life. With a college degree in lighting, set and costume design, she started her professional career as a graphic designer and director of photography for a prominent Michigan Ave. design firm and gallery. The opening of her design studio coincided with her daughter's entry into the competitive figure skating world.
She has a unique design aesthetic and strives to create a stunning competition profile for each of the athletes she designs for. Her hands-on approach makes each athlete feel comfortable and ready for their personal best. Mansie's designs are classic, timeless and distinctive.
Many of her designs integrate fabric-on-fabric texture, dip-dye and hand painted techniques, as well as unique detailing. She currently resides near Chicago, IL and has a rescue wookie- a little black miniature poodle named Jet Li!
