HELLO!

I’m an illustrator, surface designer, and educator exploring themes around human connection & belonging, body image, and nature. My creative process involves experimental techniques, mixing media, and using eye-catching color palettes that pack a punch.

After designing home products for brands such as Crate & Barrel and Kroger, I’m now exploring ways surface design can create meaningful dialogue within communities, and expand beyond decorative forms.

My art practice includes multiple disciplines: surface pattern, illustration, weaving, collage, photography and painting. Working with different tools and materials helps integrate a deeper understanding of each discipline.

Outside of making art, I spend my time hiking around the Pacific Northwest, rock climbing, going on road trips, dancing and traveling.
