A series of hand lettered parody Valentine’s Day cards to bring levity and humor to a controversial holiday.






Type design for Cotton Bureau, inspired by all the brave people living their messy, vulnerable truths out loud. When sketching out this phrase, I was reflecting on the ways in which our culture so easily distrusts women, even when they're revealing difficult experiences in the hopes of helping others. My hope is that we can examine this collective distrust and learn to hold space for women and their stories.



I designed this enamel pin to honor all the women who have persisted through countless obstacles with grace and bravery.

I collaborated with a local Portland designer to create a mini collection of bags for an art auction to benefit Planned Parenthood. Each bag is hand painted and we also made custom lining for the bags.

Cocktail Plates for Crate & Barrel

I was asked to develop illustrations and the corresponding recipe design to appear on these cocktail plates for Crate & Barrel. I later designed a second set for summer cocktails.

Scout Books Collaboration

Scout Books is a fabulous Portland-based company creating custom notebooks for all types of clients. I had the opportunity to collaborate with them by making my mark on some of their DIY notebooks. I wanted to play with the interactive quality of the books, so I chose to make faces split by the front and back covers.

An enamel pin that embodies the feeling of joy and free spiritedness! This started out as a sketch I did on a plane, and this lady has shown up in a lot of my work since then. 

1.75" tall / rose gold color / rubber backing.

I do my best to display color accurately, but there may be slight variation on different screens.

iris apfel illustration

Iris Apfel is a powerful fashion icon who inspires me through her strength of vision, her commitment to distinction and her love of color. She is a woman who makes up her own rules, and encourages other women to be guided by their own sense of self expression while embracing imperfection. At 97, her energy and vivacious nature are a force to be reckoned with. She is part of an ongoing series of people who inspire me.

Soma Water Collaboration - The Art of Water

Soma Water asked me to create a piece that represents what water means to me, as part of a yearlong artist collaboration called 'The Art of Water'. I chose to represent the symbiotic relationship between water and plants, how easily it flows into and out of all physical things, following and creating paths simultaneously.
