In 2015 I started my business in a place where the bougainvillea grows bright, the people walk with pep, and the positive energy is ecstatic: Venice Beach, CA. On my bike taking in all in or in my little bungalow creating to ethereal tunes, my free spirit felt at home there.
With prints, live portraits and colorful greeting cards I set out to engage with the open market at craft shows all over California and back in the Midwest where I’m from. The shows eventually led to wholesale and a connection in Japan where I now license my designs with companies including Ron Herman and Loft. View my Japanese website here!
I love my country. I want to celebrate forward-thinking, the beauty of diversity and our stunning landscapes. I have hope for better days and will celebrate the good stuff here ‘making life fun’ with every step I take. Everything is made in America too!
Freelance illustration is the core of my business. Working with clients in need of a special gift or buyers to create one-of-a-kind top-selling product for their stores, making it custom is what I most enjoy. Let’s make something special together that will bring you joy and last you years to come!
I am inspired wherever I go. I think up and create funny ideas at random while also trying to stick to a design schedule. My work reflects my travels while adding emphasis on encouragement and FUN. I like to make things colorful and happy, yet with simple and clean design to leave room for your imagination.
I’m a 9-year-old in a 30-year-old body. Naturally, my work has a youthful aesthetic which is not only a reflection of my personality, but of a playful and imaginative childhood. I've embraced this in hopes to spark the kid inside of all of us, to remind us to be imaginative and not take life too seriously.
