I am a designer living in the beautiful City of Roses – Portland, Oregon. I’ve had a lifelong love for art + craft, but didn’t fully pursue that passion until moving from New Jersey to Oregon in September, 2001, when I began working towards a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Portland.
Although I appreciate all styles of art, I tend to be drawn to the graphic + geometric styles of artists and illustrators like Alexander Calder, Charley Harper, Nikki McClure and Jacques Hnizdovsky – I chalk that up to the strong intersection of my left brain + right brain (see the story of my creative journey below!) I am passionate about my work and gain inspiration from so many things that surround me on a daily basis – nature, music, running, art, my beautiful family!
