Surface & Graphic Designer
I’m a print and clothing designer, working out of my home and studio space in Rockaway Beach, New York. (Yes, the New York City beach made famous by the Ramones!) I create prints from hand paintings as well as from straight digital processes. My designs are in major department stores and smaller retailers across the United States. I have designed for many other stores with varying aesthetics and the online retailer Society6.
I love painting with watercolor to create patterns.
I fell in love with print design for fashion, textiles and products during eight years working in fashion design in New York City’s iconic Garment District. Originally from California, I grew up creating and working with my hands -- especially drawing, designing, sewing and screen printing my own clothes. I moved to New York after graduating from Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where I earned an MFA in Fashion Design and learned textile print design. My undergraduate degree is in business from San Diego State University.
