I am a freelance designer and illustrator recently returned to Washington state after living in Scotland for the last several years. I’m excited about exploring visual communication in a wide variety of contexts, from communicating emotion in a picture book, communicating brand identity on the web, to relating technical instructions for a product’s set-up. I am keen to take on new design challenges to bring a vision into reality. In addition to skill with Adobe CC, painting, photography and html/css, I bring a strong liberal arts education and extended hospitality and management experience, which have helped me to become an effective communicator and enthusiastic team-member.
After several years of searching for a career, I had the opportunity to rediscover my youthful passions–art and typography–as paid work. Since that project, I have eagerly pursued growing into a designer and illustrator, and have had the pleasure of learning through a wide variety of jobs and gaining skills on my own time.
