Mercy worked in the fashion industry while obtaining a Masters Degree in Art History. The more she became enamored of Couture and Art in Fashion, the more costume engineering became a passion. Her background of Burlesque dance gave her a unique perspective on costume design, fabrics, materials, and techniques, and she is known for her current collection of one of a kind costumes/LED programmable costuming.
Mercy traveled and performed around the world, in dozens of festivals, on hundreds of stages. She made her own costumes, and perfected her techniques along the way. Her insatiable curiosity of textile arts and applications drove her persistence- looking to go above and beyond the last creation - holding those last works as the project to transcend.
Her performance art, and her distinctive work, has recently received a great deal of attention, and numerous accolades;
