About Me:

I was raised by two enthusiastic, open minded parents who allowed me to be as creative as I could. When the time came, they supported my choice to go to Savannah College of Art and Design, where I majored in Fibers (that means Textile Design, more or less). Amongst the many amazing specialties in the Fibers Department, I fell in love with 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 repeat patterns.


The vision of my brand is to fill your lives 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.


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 12 days per year of employee time to volunteering, and 5% of profits to human and environmental stewardship. 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.
