Mary has been interested in pattern design since she was a young girl; working with embroidery, needlepoint, counted cross-stitch, quilting, and crochet. She studied Fashion Illustration in college and later landed a job in jewelry design. Mary had the opportunity to live in Hong Kong to run a large design department, which opened her eyes to the world market and everything it has to offer.
