My creative journey
Ever since I was a little girl I have always been fascinated by pens and paper - I never went anywhere without them! Eventually, my need to constantly challenge myself creatively led me to a career in graphic design, one I've enjoyed for 20 years now.
Though I've spent most of my career in a corporate setting designing print advertising, logos, marketing collateral and corporate invitations, I found my true passion in the winter of 2002 as I designed my own wedding invitations. This project touched my soul so deeply, it led to a shift in my design work.
As you may already know, creativity doesn't stop when the clock hits 5pm at the end of the work day, which is why throughout my career as a graphic designer I have explored many other art forms related to visual design, such as running a wedding invitations studio, illustration and hand lettering.
There is so much to learn and explore when it comes to design - and I can't wait to work on your next stationery/lettering piece or teach YOU how to create your own!
