I am an artist and textile designer based in Whitefish, Montana. Driven by the spirit of discovery, my aim is to produce visual interest through all my art and design work. 

By synthesizing a variety of creative methods and means, I produce designs that are organic and thoughtfully composed. Drawing from my education in textile design, graphic design, and my life long passion for artistic exploration, I strive to bring aesthetic balance and beauty to every project.

Inspired by nature, artistic abstraction and Eastern sensibilities, my aesthetic is fueled by growing up in the optimistic beauty of Southern California, having lived for many years in the sophisticated complexity of New York City, and now immersed in the inspiring landscape of North West Montana. 

Although I earned my BFA in Textile/Surface Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, I am an eternal student. I have continued my education, studying a diverse range of the arts, throughout my lifetime. Driven by experimentation, I am passionate about exploring materials in order to arrive at new and innovative outcomes. 

My professional work experience includes, designing and styling prints for apparel and the home furnishing industry, as well as, designing identity packages and marketing materials for new businesses. In addition, I create commissioned pieces, for both fine art and for commercial purposes. As a creative thinker, I find joy in solving complex design problems.

From my life experiences and positive outlook, I draw a line of intention through all that I do, make and create. It is my hope to share my creative offerings with you and connect in a helpful way, with all those I encounter.
