My love for art + design dates back to third grade when I designed a report cover for my science project using construction paper and hand-drawn and cut letter forms and illustrations. Today, I am an art director and graphic designer by day and a stationery designer by night. I love to create contemporary designs that celebrate the great moments in our lives. When I’m not designing, I’m busy chasing my energetic five-year old son, painting our home, or golfing with my husband.
