I am a native of California and have lived in the San Francisco Bay area all of my life. I have been designing, drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. After graduating from UC Berkeley with a degree in Architecture, I worked in advertising and as a graphic designer before completing a second degree in Illustration from the Academy of Art in San Francisco and fully realizing my creative dreams.
In my sunny studio, I love creating hand painted watercolor artwork and more sophisticated photoshop and graphic designs for licensing to the gift, stationery and home décor markets. I work closely with my clients, enjoy the collaborative process and am always open to new ideas and fresh ways of solving creative problems. My designs have been licensed on a wide variety of products, including garden flags, greeting cards, party goods, gift bags, gift boxes, Christmas cards and ornaments, Holiday décor, wall art, apparel, woven throws, pillows, rugs, fabric, dinnerware and much more.
Art and art licensing is a passion and also a business, and I am very grateful to my fabulous husband, my beautiful boys and my family and friends for their love and support.
