I’m a graphic designer and illustrator living in Madison, Wisconsin. You’ll find my designs on company websites, collateral, and concert posters, among other places.
I studied Fine Art Illustration and Women’s Studies at the University of Connecticut for two years before moving to Madison. Shortly after I arrived, a friend asked me to make a poster for his company and I fell in love with type and design. After a few years of working in Photoshop (eeek!), I decided to get serious. I went to Madison College and got myself a degree in Graphic Design & Illustration. I also picked up the Web Certificate, which means I’m skilled in HTML and CSS, too. Best. Decision. Ever.
Since then, I’ve designed branding, illustration, print projects, and the user experience and user interface for all sorts of sites and worked on. I’m passionate about social justice, diversity, and urban agriculture, and I love to work with like-minded people.
What do you do besides graphic design?
I do many things! I’m a watercolorist, a novice ukulele player and live music junkie. I’m a gardener and beekeeper wannabe, a makeup artist, and a quirky postcard vendor.
Why do you make art?
My father was the one who shoved a pencil and paper into my hands when I was a kid. He’d spend an afternoon helping me paint on t-shirts or get proportions right on faces. By the age of six, I knew all I wanted to do with my life is make things.
Who have you worked with on graphic design projects:
Knupp & Watson & Wallman (KW2), Hinckley Design & Production, Northside Planning Council, Next Generation Consulting,, Our Lives Magazine, iCandy Graphics, Spruce Studios, Yumbutter, Barriques, The Majestic, The Frequency, Speed Cycling, Workers Independent News, and others.

If you’re currently buying muffins or other snacks to get you through the afternoon, you do have the money to attend conferences.
