I am a designer and illustrator based in Oakland, California, where I live with my husband and our pit bull mix Brody. My focus is in print, product, and packaging design. I also work with pen and ink, water color, and acrylic to create custom art and illustrations. For the past five years I have been working as a pet product designer and have extensive experience designing toys, choosing materials and fabrics, creating product spec sheets for manufacturing, creating sell sheets, catalog layout, photo shoot styling and assisting, and designing patterns for fabric to be used on bedding, collars and leashes. I love that design can take you almost anywhere, and I can't wait to see where it takes me next.
