About

20 Years of design has led me here...

I started designing when I was 13. Back then, computers were basically nonexistent in people's homes. Very few families had them in the early 90's. My Father was an early computer programmer and I was a curious kid exposed to emerging (and available) technology. That's where my story starts.

Growing up, I always had an interest in the arts. I was always drawing, painting and writing stories. Being a shy, only child - art sort of helped me along. It gave me an outlet to quietly escape the different schools my parents kept moving me to which made it difficult to make and keep friends. This trend basically continued until High School when I just finally got tired of it and decided to pursue working full-time rather than socializing and furthering my formal education. I had several jobs in my teens and 20's but I always knew I'd find my way back to art and design.

I continued to educate myself over the years - reading books, watching videos and practicing. I made early connections with savvy business-types that gave me opportunities to design logos, brochures, letterhead and product packaging. This afforded me years of experience and people always seem to like my work. It's always been a natural fit for me and to this day, I still work with companies in Europe and Australia to design branding packages for some great companies.

I always knew I wanted to circle back to art and create something truly unique to me and my tastes. Since I was a kid, I've been drawn to mid century modern design. I love the simplicity, color palettes and unique styles of the 40s, 50s and 60s in America. With a little help from my lovely fiancé, I decided to start a new adventure and design products people could use at home or on-the-go. It is a pleasure of mine to create new designs and share them with others. I don't think anything could really make me happier than knowing someone is enjoying my designs in their home in a functional, artistic way.

Art has never really been a career goal. It's just something I have a natural connection with. I was born to be an artist. Sometimes it takes years to find out where you truly belong and I've finally found a home here at Etsy.
