I am a graphic designer and illustrator.

I am also a singer, a teacher, and a lover of all things crafted and sustainable.

Painting, drawing, crafting, baking, acting, and music-making were woven into the fabric of my childhood. In short, my entire experience of life was one of creating. I went on to study graphic design and performing arts. Additionally, I have taught in Waldorf schools. All of this informs my work as a designer. Despite living deeply embedded in the digital age, my design approach employs textures from the “real world”, rich resonant colors, and handmade details — both old and new. I obsess over details of typography. And I love making logos to give a company that first polished presence in the world!

The creative energy of working with smaller tech companies excites me. And travel, food, and beverage are interests I would like to channel into future clients projects.

When not designing, I can be found pursuing studies in classical voice, knitting, reading, or dancing tango.
