I'm a lettering artist & illustrator specializing in patterns & product design for gift and retail.

After working in the gift and stationery world for almost a decade, I felt a pull towards creating my own path where I could really explore subjects that were important to me without the limitations of representing a corporate brand.

By pairing bright colors and quirky hand lettering with deeper themes of mental health, self care, and sociopolitical issues, I hope to spotlight these subjects in a more approachable way.
