Background

I currently live and work in San Francisco, CA but growing up the daughter of a foreign service officer meant lots of travel and residences abroad. I was fortunate to have that early exposure to wonderful countries, languages, local art and folk cultures. Living in places like Paris, Frankfurt and Helsinki really shaped my design aesthetic which combines a folkiness with a modern edge. My love of travel continues to be a major inspiration for me, as well as the endless beauty in nature I find right here in the Bay Area.

Statement

I use a wide variety of mediums when creating my patterns and illustrations, but always maintain my vibrant style throughout. Whether they be nature or folk-inspired, I try to keep things bright and exciting to enliven your living space.
