I am an illustrator, a designer, and a cat lover born and raised just outside of Portland, Oregon. Growing up with a background in fine art, I enjoy taking a hands-on approach to design. As often as possible, I use illustration and hand-rendered typography. My work tends to take on a dainty, whimsical quality, with a strong versatility through different media. I have found a passion for a wide array of design skills, including web development, interactivity, book binding, printmaking, and package design. I am inspired by fantasy worlds, patterns, cute critters, and Studio Ghibli.
