I love creating art of all kinds. Drawing & creating surface patterns has been a lifelong love of mine & my style has been developed over many years. My hand-drawn artwork is sincere, whimsical, sweet, & stylized...oftentimes with a vintage flair. I love bright, happy colors & patterns reminiscent of my childhood.
I try to incorporate mindfulness into everything I do &
my artwork is no exception. Each line I draw & each stitch I make is done with intention & the stories behind each of my patterns will (I hope) inspire you to have

              a mindfully nice life.

 All of my patterns are available for licensing -
either as full collections or as individual designs.
I would love to work with you!

LoveAlways

We all need love. So many of us, however spend time searching for love outside of our own selves. All the love you really need is already inside of you. The more love you have for yourself, the more love have for others. Practicing loving kindness for yourself, as well as for others, is an integral part of practicing Mindfulness. "Be more loving towards yourself & let your love flood the world." (-Pema Chodron).

What If You Fly

The "What If You Fly" collection is all about trusting and believing in yourself. So often in life, we listen to & follow those around us, believing there is only one way...but, sometimes that chatter is confusing and holds us back from being our true selves. What if you learned to quiet the chatter & unlearned all of those things? Who would you be? How high could you fly?

Somewhere

Our thoughts come & go, just like clouds in the sky. When our thoughts are of somewhere else, we tend to miss out on the experiences & beauty that surrounds us, wherever we are, in the present moment. The Somewhere Collection is a gentle reminder to practice gratitude & look for the good that is all around you. There may be gray skies & rainy days, but a rainbow & sunshine are always close by. Your "somewhere" is right here and YOU are the gold at the end of the rainbow.

London

This London collection was inspired by a recent visit to London. Traveling mindfully allows you to be completely immersed in your new surroundings and experiencing everything with all of your senses, without distraction. What can we learn about our own familiar surroundings if we try to experience every day in this mindful way?

Pretzels

Mindful eating is an important practice. It increases your awareness, enjoyment, & gratitude for the foods you choose. The next time you choose a snack, try to notice everything about it - its texture, weight, color, shape, scent, & taste. Imagine where this food comes from & give gratitude to all the things & people that have made it available to you.

goodvibes

The GoodVibes Collection is inspired by my admiration for & fascination with vintage items as well as surface patterns & colors that I remember from my childhood. I hope this collection helps you feel surrounded by Good Vibes.

gardenofflawers

This collection is a reminder that it is our "flaws" that help us bloom & become something beautiful. It is an awareness that there are no flaws at all. It is very freeing to let go of our ideas of perfectionism in order to truly be happy & enjoy life.

Meadowtationmulti

Living among the wildflowers in seemingly endless meadows, I find solace & daily inspiration from my surroundings. Being outside is where I contemplate life & practice gratitude & appreciation for my place in the universe. The Meadowtation Collection (in both colorways) is a representation of experiences & emotions that accompany my meadow-meditations.

Portfolio GeoRetro-01

Inspired by my love of intricate geometrical shapes & retro patterns that can be looked at many different ways, the GeoRetro Collection is sure to inspire contemplation and a relaxed, meditative state. "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."

BeMyHoney

Inspired by the quote, "Aerodynamically, the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know that, so it goes on flying anyway." (-Mary Kay Ash) This collection is a reminder to be cautious of negative self-talk. Find the beauty in the world (just as the bees find the flowers) & always do your best. Sweetness will be your reward.
