Believe in Your Wings
My creativity and artistic interest has been a thread running through the fabric of my life. Raised in an environment where creativity was nurtured and encouraged, I experimented with just about every kind of creative expression from finger paints to technical drawing. Believing a career in art would not sustain me, I chose to train as a Technical Illustrator, a safer more believable career path. I stumbled across graphic design during my training, fell in love with the medium and now have over 20 years of experience as a designer and illustrator. My career also includes creative leadership, art direction, brand identity, product design and marketing; all of which combine to provide the knowledge and skills to collaborate on a wide variety of projects.
My artwork is a heartfelt reflection of the beauty and wonder of nature, whimsical memories from my childhood, and from watching my own children as they encountered the world and discovered the wonder in everyday simple things. I make my home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest surrounded by trees and wildlife. I live with my husband and a stable of pets, two Welsh Corgi’s (a rather spirited one and one that is basically a door stop) and a precocious
black-panther-esque kitty. We also raised three wonderful adult children; a daughter and two sons and they are my greatest joys and contributions to the world.
You can find a variety of different types of work on my site. Digital and hand-spun illustrations and some of my paper collage work under the page "Paper Amour". I offer paper collage group classes in-person and teach on Skillshare.
