I believe my role as an artist and textile designer is
to open my eyes, see and notice the beauty around me,
and synthesize those experiences into tangible form.

I grew up in rural Southern Illinois on land that has been passed down through my family for generations. I spent my childhood running through the creek and climbing trees with my sisters, watercolor painting at my grandparent’s kitchen table overlooking the garden, cooking, and sewing. My world was saturated in the natural and domestic spheres — a dynamic harmony ever present between creation and creating.

I moved to New Orleans for college and other than brief stints in both Savannah, GA (for grad school) and the Pennsylvania countryside (to work in Lilly Pulitzer’s print design studio), I’ve spent most of my adult life surrounded by the joy and celebration of New Orleans. My art combines the natural world of my childhood with the colorful vibrancy of NOLA.

With a B.A. in English and Studio Art (Painting) from Tulane University and an M.A. in Fibers (Textile Design/Print & Pattern) from the Savannah College of Art and Design, I work as an artist and textile designer. I’ve worked as a print designer for Lilly Pulitzer, I have fabric collections available with Dear Stella Fabrics, and I’ve had products in Target and HomeGoods stores. I have surface pattern designs and collections available for licensing. Follow me on Instagram for more snippets of my life and design work.
