About

At a very young age, my mom gave me and my brother the gift of teaching us how to sew and draw. From that point on, I've always loved finding inspiration and then bringing it to reality with my own hands.

My brother and I used our sewing skills to make baseball uniforms for all our stuffed animals and I eventually learned to craft extravagant outfits for my dolls.

After leaving my hometown of Yakima, Washington, I went on to Washington State University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Graphic Design. During my time in college, I flocked to any creative class I could take, including quite a few classes in architecture.

After landing in Portland, Oregon, I worked for several years at an offset printing company, soaking up any knowledge I could gain. After several years, I enrolled at the Art Institute of Portland to begin working toward my Bachelor of Science in Interior Design. I can honestly say that these years were some of my favorite times in my life. I've never worked so hard in school in my whole life and even though I didn't go on to become an interior designer, there's not a day that goes by that I don't feel grateful for everything I learned in that time.

Now, I'm a marketing project manager for a major corporation, mother of two wonderful kids (and black lab), and wife of the most supportive husband in the world. I'm so grateful for this opportunity to let my creativity come to life.
