I was a little girl who drew pictures and then went around selling them to her neighbors. Sorry neighbors. I also went around and collected spare change, but that's a story for another day. I pumped my fist for book reports because I knew that meant pulling out the markers and glue. Valentine boxes were designed and crafted for hours because they had to be just right. Doodles and drawings made their way to all my notes.
When I found the design department at my university, the clouds parted and I swear I heard a chorus of angels sing. "You mean, I get to take art classes all day?" I was sold. Also- that meant no more math classes for me. Yippee! I graduated with a bachelors degree in design and haven't looked back. I've worked as a designer for a design firm, as an in-house graphic artist for a furniture company, but mostly as a freelancer. I love it! My favorite things to create are collections of patterns and art for licensing. So addicting.
I'm a mom to six kids, love natural health, fitness, and plant based food. Country or city? Got to have both. I love a good vintage find, think quirky is good, and believe that everyone has a story to tell. I'm fan of homemade, hand finished, green living, and simple solutions. But- I'm also big fan of tech and all the fun gadgets we get to play with these days. I love living in the rocky mountains. Grateful to wake up to the Wasatch range every day. Beautiful.
Thanks for being my virtual neighbors and letting me share my art with you!
