Bio:

Ever since “beautifying” my family’s kitchen chairs with crayons as a kid, I've been inspired by the comforts of home.

I love to create illustrations and patterns to bring whimsy and beauty to the everyday. While I love to see new places, I usually don't need to look any further than my kitchen or garden for inspiration.
