About

About Me:

I owe my parents everything for being so encouraging and supportive of my creative career. I know they had big ideas for me when they supported my decision to go to the Savannah College of Art and Design, and to major in Fibers (that means textile design, more or less).

Amongst the many amazing specialties in the Fibers Department, I fell in love with textile and repeat pattern design. After graduation I went to work for Carter's, where I worked for three years, and gained invaluable industry knowledge.

After three years of corporate work, I made the decision to take a more creative (but less secure, yikes!) route with my work. I took a few months to develop my work and a portfolio, which ended up leading to many offshoot endeavors: wedding calligraphy, children's book illustration, packaging design, all of which I still dabble in today. Although my true interest is still, and will probably always be, in textile design.

Vision:

The vision of my brand is to fill your life with clever and stimulating pattern and color on a range of products that are diverse, but not frivelous. I want you to feel that you can escape to a luxurious, funny or colorful place when you see my patterns. I aim to partner sophisticated and lasting designs with quality products that can be enjoyed a lifetime, and passed on to future generations.

Responsibility:

In my work I strive to create unique illustrations, but also believe that everything we do needs to be done in an environmentally and socially responsible way. I donate 5% of profits to human and environmental stewardship (and when I readjust to life with a new baby, will also contribute my time volunteering!). When choosing partnerships, the highest effort is made to scrutinize the impact made on the environment and the lives of the people manufacturing and consuming the product.
