As a graphic designer turned illustrator with over 14 years of experience, I create illustrations for home decor, wall art, publishing, gifts, stationery, greeting cards and more. With a passion for creating and a nerd-level love of watercolor and lettering, I will create the perfect illustration for you.
I believe that illustrating is done best with a coffee or tea in hand (preferably iced).
My studio cat Sebastian is a pro at bird watching and is currently in training for trend analysis.
Having a little boy has changed my life. He is the reason I create and has helped me focus on my passion for illustration. His love of crayons and markers is next level.

How It All Began
I first remember making art, standing in the backyard with my easel and painter overalls. I was only 5, but I knew I wanted to be an artist. My mind was already made up. Just like I decided to become a vegetarian, this was a pivotal year for me.
After graduating from CalArts with a b.f.a in graphic design, I was designing album covers for major bands by day and illustrating at night. I was at a crossroads. It was the scariest and most excited thing I ever did, but I made that creative leap into full time freelance illustration!
In 2007, I designed my first greeting card on my kitchen table. I launched my card line Paper Loop in New York at the National Stationery Show. My cards have been selling nationwide ever since.
In 2019, I launched my Etsy shop. As a new Mom, I knew that Etsy was the perfect outlet for me. It's so exciting to create new products for my customer! I’m currently painting my way across the US in watercolor.
