with heart

I'm an artist, designer, mama and creative at heart. I'm glad you're here.

Hi there, friend!

I've loved art and design for as long as I can remember, and I'm so fortunate to get to work creatively in a lot of different outlets. Portraits, creative campaigns, website design and branding--I've never been able to "pick a lane" because I truly love everything that I do. Here you'll find more information about my past work and how I might be able to help you bring your own ideas to life.

I’m a storyteller.
I use design, illustration and words to tell the colorful, joyful story of YOU. 

Thanks! Got it.

thanks, friend. more to come!

To inspire women to live with joy and color, and to follow their dreams.

i'm on a mission

That the joy is in the journey, and that, as my kiddos remind me daily: it's most easily found when you stop to smell the roses. 

i believe

While I've always loved art and design (I even attended and loved yearbook camp) I went to business school to study marketing, believing that it was the more sensible path. After 15 years in the corporate marketing world, working both agency-side and in-house, my son was born and I knew I needed to find a different path. I left my job to build up my freelance business helping women with their branding and website design. Along the way, my passion for art and illustration came forward and now I get to work on a variety of creative projects around my priorities as a mom with young kids.
