Owner + Designer
Hi! I'm a designer and artist specializing in print design, retail displays,
visual branding and packaging art. My values lie in providing beautiful
work to smaller size companies in an effort to encourage business
growth, creativity and community.
With 14+ years experience in various roles within the creative industry,
I have worn many hats from Graphic Designer, to Art Director in an
advertising agency environment and even Director of Marketing for
retail before returning to freelance after becoming a mom.
I now enjoy the flexibility of running my own studio and spending
more time with family.
Some of my favorite things include
Hanging out with my 3 favorite dudes: My little guy Luke, who is 7,
my awesome hubby Chuck who makes me coffee (A.K.A. creative juice)
and a crazy old pug named Fenway...I love many styles of art and
design, paper goods (anything letterpress printed gets me excited),
tacos, traveling to new places and paddle boarding into the sunset
with Pearl Jam blasting on my waterproof speaker.

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.
