I am a designer + illustrator living out my dreams in Portland, Oregon.
My colorful paintings, illustrations and patterns are full of whimsical characters
and sincere messages to inspire peace, creativity, and teaching moments.
A few of my favorite things have always been creating, crafting, rainbows + finding simple beauty in the everyday. During the expanse of my career over the past
20 years, I have worked as an illustrator, a graphic designer, an art director in advertising, an art director in apparel and in-store graphics, creator of my own products, and a children’s art teacher.
I love drawing with pen + ink and enjoy painting with gouache. I often bring my
hand-drawn pieces onto the computer to complete a pattern, recipe or illustration that will later end up on a product.
My most recent work includes seed packet surprises in kid’s meals at Burgerville restaurants, illustrations for a book with Storey Publishing, and the design of
a helmet for Nutcase.
