So nice to meet you.

A good deal of my childhood was spent outside in the wheat fields of Washington usually with a coloring book or set of paints in hand. Not a whole lot has changed.

I began my journey in the creative world when I attended Montana State University and received my BFA in Graphic Design and Art History. I spent a semester abroad in Italy studying in museums, sketching typography and making art. These travel experiences, be it international or simply on a hike in my Northwest backyard, have always and continue to greatly inform my work.

I returned to my hometown of Spokane, WA and have worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for a variety of local businesses and organizations along the way. Creating my own art has become a growing focus of mine and I am excited to see what this next chapter holds.

Oh, and I live on a Christmas tree farm in the beautiful area of Green Bluff, WA with my husband, Michael, and our beloved, fluffy pup, Ossa. My other loves include: good books, coffee, road trips & sleeping under the stars.
