I’m a freelance surface pattern designer and illustrator living in sunny Los Angeles, California. My designs are playful, bold and bright. I work in a range of styles from watercolor and gouache to Photoshop and Illustrator. My artwork has been licensed for greeting cards, wall art, fabric, gifts, accessories and more.
I studied graphic design at California Institute of the Arts. After graduating, I worked with a design studio designing album covers for major bands. I fell in love with illustration along the way. In 2008, I launched my own line of greeting cards at the National Stationery Show. My card line Paper Loop continues to evolve, selling in gift shops, boutiques and museum shops. You can find my cards in L.A., San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Houston, Seattle, Colorado, Pittsburgh and more.
