Tell us a fun fact about you
I’m an Enneagram Type Two. Coffee is my beverage of choice. I work as a graphic designer at a men’s clothing company for my day job!

How did you get into illustration?
I went to art school for graphic design, and have always loved incorporating hand drawn elements into my work!

Who or what inspires you the most?
My artwork is inspired by the good, the bad, the messy, and most importantly—the beautiful aspects of being a human being. As someone who struggles with anxiety and depression, I strive to bring joy and optimism to others through bright colors, whimsical patterns and hand drawn letter forms.

What does a typical day look like for you?
I like to get up early (I’m definitely a morning person!), and 3-4x a week I’ll go for a jog or workout. After I get ready for my day, I usually make a quick breakfast or pack a smoothie. When I’m home from my full-time job, I work on any outstanding freelance work, social media posts, and catch up on emails! I like to end my day by relaxing and catching up on my favorite TV show with my husband and pup.

What do you do when you have a creative block?
Recently I’ve been accepting the block, and knowing that it will pass. Everything is temporary—even a creative block!

What tools (digital or not!) do you use to create your work?
My sketchbook, my favorite brush ben, an old school Ticonderoga pencil, my iPad, and Apple pencil. I also use Procreate and the Adobe Creative Suite.

What’s your favourite resource for inspiration?
Traveling somewhere new!

Do you have any tips for artists thinking of doing freelance?
I have a few tips! 1. Create the work you want to be hired for. 2. Put your work out there—even if it’s not “perfect”! 3. Don’t be afraid of failing! It’s the only way to learn from your mistakes, grow, and improve.

What would your dream project be?
Collaborating with one of my favorite brands—Ban.do, Anthropologie, or Target.

How can fans keep up-to-date with your work?
