This is me

Hi There!

I’m a freelance artist and graphic designer, and I’ve been working as a digital scrapbook product designer for 9 years. I have a passion for design and art and have spent pretty much my entire life cutting and pasting and drawing and painting on things. My four school-aged boys, my husband and I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, in Vancouver, WA – just north of quirky Portland. In addition to mom-ing, wife-ing and designing I’m also the Children’s Ministries Coordinator at our church and I’m also working toward my degree in Graphic Design. I’m so happy you are here and I can’t wait to share my work, and my life, and other random bits with with you! Thanks for stopping by!

I’m super proud to announce my most recent design achievement: The Project Life Explore Edition with Becky Higgins is a Full Core kit along with a 12×12 album, photo overlays, flair, frames, and a set of die cut shapes and illustrations.  I could not be more proud of my first product produced for the paper industry and I can’t wait to do more!
