I’m a creative thinker and go-getter. I put delightful and purposeful visuals to your words and ideas. I make this happen through design, photography, friendship, and some serious tricks.

Who doesn’t love a good splatter paint project?
Here are the few simple steps:
» Roll out a long strip of uncoated wrapping paper face up. (in the mail supplies section in an office supply store!)
» Pour white acrylic paint into a cup. If it’s thick, dilute it with a little water.
» Use a paint brush and flick it (like you’re drumming!) a few feet away from the paper.
» Let dry for a few hours before rolling back up.
This project was so fun and simple, it’s inspired me to make more! Next time I’ll be trying white paper with black paint. Or black paper with dark green paint. So many options!

Remember the packaging system I designed for Brooke Schwab? A few months after that project ended, Brooke was ready for a new look online.
Brooke wanted a simple site with no frills—allowing her photographs to shine. A design that could change form and be easily updated. What we ended up with is a clean editable grid with the option to choose your view, from a 4-column to 2-column.
I also created a simplified mobile version of her site that’s only 1-column, making it easier to navigate by phone.

Jennifer Smith’s Perfect Saturday—a day of sleeping in, playing records, bloody marys, tennis and a wedding. My kinda girl.
Jen asked me to photograph her day for September’s issue of Matchbook Magazine. She had a clear vision of what she wanted—a retro take on suburbia with each image telling a clear story.
The article included six locations (!) and an endless amount of interesting props. Jennifer art directed the shoots with her brilliant set of eyes.

Thanks again, Matchbook and Jennifer, for bringing me on for such an interesting project.
I don’t usually post about products on the blog but these are just too good not to share with you.
Alyson Fox, my muse and friend, has done it again with this fabulous collection of textiles, in collaboration with Hawkins New York.
The blankets feature embroidered shapes with reverse colored backs while the rugs, made of 100% wool, are inspired by Alyson’s hand drawn designs.
The attention to detail on these pieces is incredible.
I’ve been inspired by Alyson’s work for a long time now and have loved seeing her creations evolve over time. And now, as a new home owner, you can bet I’m saving up for a couple of these special textiles.

Kerri from The Wellgro Co. brought me on to create a set of campaign buttons for her October Get Fresh campaign. The campaign is dedicated to raising awareness to the importance of fresh & healthy food in school cafeterias.
It was fun to look through old presidential campaign buttons for inspiration—for the graphics and verbiage.
I adore this cause and I adore Kerri. We’re determined to work on more projects together in the future.
