Seven years ago I decided it was time to embark on a new journey. I left the fast-paced fashion world I had dedicated 10 years of my life to, to follow my dreams and pursue a more curated life, where I could be intentional about what I create and stretch myself to learn and grow each day towards things that are important to me.
Two weeks after my last day, I exhibited at Surtex, a major art tradeshow in NYC. I didn’t know where this next step would take me, but I knew following my dreams was necessary and would be worth it. Thankfully, the great response I’d received to my work officially launched my business and set me on a new path that I was curious to explore and grow in to.
Now, I am 7 years in to pursuing my big dream – making a living from my art and doing what I love most. I enjoy working with companies in a variety of industries to help beautify products and am always looking for new ways to expand my reach. My artwork can be found in boutique and specialty stores, online, and in select mass retailers across the world. My work has appeared on fabrics, stationery, home décor, wall art, fashion accessories, tabletop, gift products – and even cake!
How did I get here? Well, prior to fulfilling my dream, I focused on cultivating my creative and business sides. I devoted 10 years to the fashion industry, creating hundreds of patterns for Nordstrom product lines, as well as designing my own prints for sale worldwide through a well-known art representative in London. Along with my work in the fashion industry, I designed stationery and gift-wrap products for one of the most well known card manufacturers in the world – Hallmark.
I currently live in the Seattle area of Washington State where you can mostly find me glued to my studio working on some creative project and listening to an audio book. When I venture out, you can find me shopping, exploring my city by discovering new coffee shops and boutiques, and spending time with my favorite person in the world, my husband of 16 years, Jake.
