I’m an artist, illustrator, and surface pattern designer. I create original artwork that explores color, pattern, and structure using fabric, felt, paint, paper, and thread. My stationery and surface patterns originate from paintings, sketches, hand-lettering, and digital drawings.
I start my work with a question or concept and use whatever medium seems like it will work best to carry it out. I’ve studied drawing, painting, bookmaking, lampworking, sculpture, and pottery at schools including Middlebury College, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, University of Washington, Pratt Fine Art Center and Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, Washington.
I’m inspired by literature, children’s art, quilt designs, nature, and small details and observations from ordinary life.
