Val Saxton - Instructor
Valerie Saxton is a fashion connoisseur. Her mother taught her to sew at 16, and Valerie designed and sewed her first swimsuits 6 months later. She is currently attending the Academy of Art University's online fashion styling program, working toward her Bachelors degree. She loves all things vintage, and has her own etsy shop selling her amazing finds. Her love for costuming began at local second-hand stores creating Halloween costumes. She has costumed "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" at the OC and "Doo Wop Red Riding Hood" at Murray Amphitheater. When she's not costuming, Valerie is a stay-at-home mom to her amazing 2 year old son Conner. She would like to thank her amazing husband Adam for supporting her in this new adventure. She is honored to be involved in the Academy of Creativity, and can't wait to meet everyone.
