Born and raised in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to obtain my Bachelor of Fine Arts in drawing and design from Dominican University of California. With over fifteen years of experience in the textile, fine art, and print industries, I am now settled in lush Sonoma County focusing on my work as a mother, designer, and gardener.
As a young artist I captured and preserved butterflies and insects to study their intricate patterns and colors; later I cultivated a design aesthetic through the beauty of natural proportion found in the Fibonacci sequence. I believe the designer's work should be invisible, or at least transparent. When the viewer is focused and feels a sense of flow throughout the layout, then the design(er) has succeeded.
I thrive in a close working relationship with my clients, taking the seeds of their ideas and growing them to their fullest potential.
