"A personal project illustrating the covers of some of my very favorite books."
I like to think of myself as a spunky 87-year old woman in a much younger body. Along with the frequent day-dreaming and an unquenchable taste for prunes, I find that I take great joy in perusing consignment shops, embroidering handkerchiefs, and enjoying a nice cup of peppermint tea. This appreciation of life’s everyday details has led to my love of: the research thrill, the brainstorming rush, the unpredictable design process, quirky color, and just about anything involved in design from start to finish. I specialize in hand lettering, illustration, and tree climbing and I love what I do!
