My core values of faith, beauty, integrity, and love are my fuel. I am an introvert - an INFP and type 9 on the Enneagram - and as a creative I am naturally drawn to beauty. To me, the ultimate beauty is the beauty found in the wild - a natural beauty; a gift from the ultimate Creator. I also cherish the beauty found in moments of connection and community. A belly laugh with a friend, beautiful vocal harmonies, the perfect cup of coffee on a crisp Fall morning, a kind stranger, a really good hug. My other pursuits include cooking, reading, gardening, and making music. The spunky little lady pictured above is my daughter, and my muse. She has a wonderful imagination and sense of wonder - with her, there's magic in everything.
ABOUT MY WORK
My career began working as an intern for one of my personal design heroes at CSA Design in Minneapolis. I have since gained experience in illustration, publication design, branding and collateral, poster design, writing, and environmental design. I have enjoyed working with fellow artists, photographers, illustrators, entrepreneurs, and larger corporations. As a designer, my creativity is one of my strengths. I am also well-organized, and familiar with maintaining multiple projects at once. I am dedicated to my work, thorough and reliable. My work celebrates white space. As Leonardo da Vinci once said, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." I also enjoy including a "human," element in my designs - something hand-drawn, or with a bit of humor. I also support sustainability, and strive to create environmentally-conscious designs.
