From my youngest days selling knitted cat toys on consignment and earrings on the street of the Palace of the Fine Arts in my hometown of San Francisco, I knew that my life would take me down a creative path.
In my teenage years I was lucky enough to dabble in a range of mediums, taking classes in stained glass, wood and photography at my high school, and sewing or making jewelry in my free time. I enjoyed sewing so much that I continued on to study Fashion Design at Cornell University. During this time I was able to discover my love of illustration and graphic art while studying abroad in Florence, and I have pursued design and illustration ever since.
Following graduation, I spent four years in New York City working at SelectNY as an art director for beauty and luxury clients such as Calvin Klein, Swarovski, and Sebastian Professional. In need of a change from the big city life, I spent a year and half traveling the world and working as a designer along the way. I have now come full circle, and am back in San Francisco working as a freelance designer.
