Hi! I'm a graphic designer and artist specializing in print design, retail displays,
visual branding, collateral, environmental graphics and digital assets.

 

With 12+ years experience in various roles within the creative industry,
I have worn many hats from freelance designer, to Art Director in a boutique
advertising agency and even Director of Marketing for retail in the pet industry before ultimately deciding to run my studio from home in sunny Florida.

Some of my favorite things include
Hanging out with my 2 favorite dudes: My little guy Luke, who is 8, and
my awesome hubby Chuck. We love to paddleboard and take mini trips
down to Key Largo often. We also really dig Pearl Jam and classic rock.

I've practiced yoga for years and got certified to teach in June 2020!
I'm a lover of many art forms and recently have returned to painting,
scanning in my art and creating made to order goods with my illustrations.
This new passion project will become a very cool online shop with all things art, yoga and happiness =)
 Letterpress paper goods get me very excited and
I hope to someday learn how to run my own antique press! My favorite food
is tacos and I love a good bourbon.

My Process

It usually starts with an initial concept, at least 2 cups of coffee
(or sometimes whiskey in the evening hours) and lots of research time which then results in a sketch, digital doodle or even a photoshoot to mockup an idea.

 

I work in various mediums in both the traditional and digital
form, and have never been the type of artist to stick to one
specific aesthetic as I love experimenting with different styles.
