I have enjoyed a career in graphic design, illustration and creative direction and am now focusing on licensing art, illustration and artwork collections for textiles, paper goods, greeting cards and gift wrap, housewares, gifts and more. A creative and fun life developed since I was two years old and started drawing, according to my Mom.

I’ve worked many years as a creative director with Chicago ad agencies, loving my creative teams, the work, mentoring my junior designers/illustrators through web coders and now also teach and tutor art classes and technical digital illustration/design, as I do love all of that. This has given me a great variety of experience with my actual artwork and collections, but also with managing projects, meeting deadlines and making sure everything in a project is the best it can be, from the art collections through all of those I work with. I am loving it all! There can be no bigger blessing than following a lifelong dream and finding ways to do it all.
