PRINTMAKER + GRAPHIC DESIGNER
I’m a graphic designer based in traditional printmaking with an acute awareness of color and structure. I explore textures, patterns and visual cues from the natural world.
My work has a unique, earthy and grounded feeling that is filled with deep intention. Most of my work is inspired by the natural world around me. I think of design as a universal language, like nature; communication and accessibility are very important to me. As a designer, my work is about understanding and identity - bringing simple visual cues together that create a greater interconnected meaning. My knowledge of texture, colors, and patterns gained from my fine art work, has a strong influence in my designs. My process is very hands-on, working with a variety of tactile mediums. I sketch out all my ideas out on physical paper. I want to feel connected to the physical control of the pencil, explore many ideas like a stream of consciousness. Then I transition to digital work to refine the ideas. I like to keep making and moving forward and value design thinking in the process of creating something unifying and representational of something familiar.
