I'm an illustrator and designer who wears a lot of hats.
Art Hat: I earned my BA and a BFA in Printmaking from the University of Washington, where I fell in love with visual storytelling on expensive rectangular substrates, bright silkscreen inks, layering, handmade textures, and the collaborative process.
Illustration Hat: Later I earned a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration from Seattle Central Creative Academy, where I fell in love with telling other people’s stories on paper through design, ilustration and specifically, poster design.
Professor Hat: I now teach at Seattle Central Creative Academy. Sometimes in a costume.
Wizard Hat: Strange Magic Workshop is my online store. I sell prints, cards, stickers and zines both online and at local pop-ups.
Poster Hat: Sometimes you’ll find me collaborating over at nope.ltd. a design studio located in the cloud between Seattle and Portland. We make pictures for your stories and are especially excited when we get to put that story on a poster.
Mom Hat: Some of my very best creations aren’t drawings at all, they are actual humans who share my love of drawing, storytelling and wacky dancing.
