I’ve spent many years fine tuning my skills working in a variety of creative fields: interior design, business graphics and branding, greeting cards and stationary, children’s apparel, theatrical set design, art education, and textile and wallcovering digital design … to name a few. I get ridiculously excited every new year when Pantone releases their new ‘Color of the Year’, I absolutely LOVE repeat patterns, and I have a huge collection of vintage children’s picture books that I look at and read still because they make me happy. Drawing and painting soothes my soul, and sharing my passion for art fills me with joy. It’s a win-win to be able to make a career of this.
I live in beautiful sunny Southern California with my husband and two sons. The beach and the mountains are only a short drive away, and I love that I can escape to both at a moments notice. My studio is filled with knick-knacks to inspire and enough clutter to know that my creative muse is in residence.

what makes me happy …
I am obsessed with all things PUMPKIN! As far as I’m concerned there is no better time of year then Autumn when these beauties hit the market and adorn my front porch.
I love Pantone Colors and working with this brilliant color matching system makes my life so much easier as a designer. I am always excited to see their big reveal of the new ‘Color of the Year’.
It's all good stuff - I promise
