Now that you are here, we are about to have a lot of fun. Let's dive in... Before being a full time artist, I was a badass brand designer just mere months ago. I created brands and socials for Almost 30 Podcast, Mandy Ansari, CEO School, and Lucie Fink. During that time, I've learned how to brand yourself perfectly & how to show up online as your true self (to hit those ideal clients & make that $$$).
 
I built my business spending hours a day creating brands in Illustrator, social graphics and GIFs in Photoshop, illustrations in Procreate, and learning every single little skill possible. I've never said no to something I didn't know how to do...I always just went for it and taught myself along the way. As a proud Adobe Ambassador, I believe we all have the skills to design the biz we dream of.



You may have walked by me one year at Alt Summit (my fave creative community to hang with every year). Building a strong community to surround me has been instrumental in my success.

For the past forever, I was super afraid of that “artist” word. I continuously thought that I had to be a trained fine artist to claim the name for myself. I walked that journey for quite some time. I learned a lot about how to show up in a way that felt like ME and silencing the continuous noise that social media produces. I’ve proved to myself (and many others) that DOING will get you there. I’ve come up with amazing ways to tap into yourself and your ideal audience to finally be making a living from your ART. 



totally in

Whether you are an artist ready to meet cool people and learn alongside with me or a brand ready to make your products stand out with whimsically rad art & patterns, I am sure we will get along.

And now, I want to help YOU do the SAME EXACT THING. You in?

and it went like...
