ABOUT

Somehow it began with an Usborne lettering book under the Christmas tree in third grade, and I have been drawing my way through notepads since. Fast forward a handful of years and a design degree, and most days you'll find me in my studio creating designs and lettering for brands or brides and teaching modern calligraphy and brush lettering workshops at some of my favorite shops & boutiques around Portland. My sweet spot is working with passionate creatives and business owners like you to help clarify brand messages and create compelling visuals. I believe in the brands I work with and I'm passionate about helping businesses find clarity, stand out, and tell their story beautifully and effectively. The icing on the cake is the creative community that comes from all of this--and the fact that by the time I wrap up a project, my clients have turned into friends and we're toasting launches and business successes.

When I'm not drawing letters, I am spending time with my author agent husband, Blair, eating tacos, sipping wine, chatting about the Enneagram (which is sort of how we met, but that's a story for another day), and reading memoirs. I've been told my spirit animal is a cat and I'm on a lifelong quest to find the perfect daily rhythm (the verdict is still out, but, yes, I would love to chat about it over coffee any day of the week).
