long story short
Making a good product more appealing with great artwork and a killer color palette has been my focus for the last 15 years. I adore surface pattern because it blends fun and functional, and I was lucky enough to discover it’s charms while studying at Syracuse University. After earning my BFA, I worked for 9 years in New York City as an in-house designer for home textiles and apparel. Deadlines, revisions and manufacturing constraints don’t scare me.
I left those cushy salaried jobs for the wild west of freelance and licensing in order to live the suburban dream in Raleigh, North Carolina. Now my husband and I have a lovely house, a yard that we desperately try to keep green, and two lovable sons under age 3. I spend my days designing for all kinds of industries, freelancing for clients like Amscan, Evite, and GapKids. I also license my art with partners including Studio M, DesignDesign, and Camelot Fabrics through my agency, Jewel Branding. I love getting to design for so many different end products, and it has given me a versatile set of skills that clients love. I'm always looking for to new ways to decorate the world, so email now and we can get started on your next project.
Fruit motifs have been my favorite since I was a kid.
My go-to karaoke jam is ‘If This Is It’ by Huey Lewis. Related: I cannot sing.
My favorite cupcakes are Funfetti with white frosting.
I live for the beach. Especially if there are frozen cocktails involved.
