My life is a combination of work I love and am passionate about, my search for healthier living, being aware of the little gems in the days and weeks, growing a business while keeping my family a priority, managing my creative time at the office, enjoying every second of my weekends, and crafting a creative, happy life.
I’ve done the corporate world in broadcast design, having worked for many years designing and animating graphics for tv shows and managing others. It came with rewards and prestige but also came with stress, long days, and a nagging sense that I was not doing what I came here to do, both in my message and my art. I decided to pursue work that was more personal and artistic through illustration, textile and surface design and exploring ways of sharing my vision through licensing my artwork. My work now starts from my heart and blooms with color, happiness and inspiration. I love to create. Whether it is decorating our work-in-progress modern-ish home or making up a new recipe for our mix of dietary preferences (yes, we have a vegan, a pescatarian, a vegetarian and a full meat-eater in our family), it is all part of the creative journey. My work projects range from greeting cards and calendars to collections for tabletop end entertaining. My days at my studio help me create the space I come home to, with products to share and products for the home- ones with color, warmth, connection and stylish design.
It’s all a work in progress…and along the way I have met wonderful artists, my great agent, helpful manufacturers and good friends as I continue to learn new things everyday about the industries I create for.
