About

What did your 12 year old self want to be when it grew up?

For awhile my 12 yr. old self wanted to be an architect. On paper I'd sketch, plot and plan some pretty interesting "buildings". Then, with graph paper in hand, that morphed into the desire to design the interiors. As I began noticing the print ads in my Seventeen magazine I was drawn to the photography and set-up of the images in those ads. I was especially obsessed with a certain makeup brand's images and styling. At about the same time I began noticing the packaging on the perfume & makeup counters in the mall. I even noticed the designs on the paper napkins and tissue boxes in the grocery store. I'd wonder, "Who does that?" and "Where do they do that?"

Fast forward a few twists & turns, even a few decades, I find myself still in love with design. Design of all kinds but especially graphic design. I now have some vocabulary and knowledge to answer many of my 12 yr. old's questions so when I'm admiring a design I have a little better understanding of the creativity and effort that went into the piece.

Combining my love of graphic design with my long time obsession with note cards & letters gives me a feeling that's hard to describe. I feel very fortunate to be able to create something that gives me that feeling and to be able to express design in my own way. I'm grateful to have a place like Etsy to sell, interact and connect with those who appreciate my work.

My work has been featured in The Paper Chronicles.

If you're a retailer interested in carrying my cards please get in touch. I'm an Etsy wholesale seller and I'd be happy to share my linesheet with you!

Thanks for stopping by and finding out a bit about what makes me tick.

    I partner with a local printer to print my paper goods. I am able to visit their facility to select paper, approve proofs and have press checks. Quality work is important to both of us. All items are inspected, packaged and shipped by me.
