Horse races make me think of Mary Poppins and that puts me in a good mood. Plus, I got to draw horses wearing hats… safe to say this was a fun project for me.
BuzzFeed & Temptations™
This was my all time favorite project. My superstar co-worker, Emily Clements, wrote the hilarious copy for these kitties. After she handed me the copy I went to town! Drawing cats is fun.
This project was for Destination DC. I was asked to make hip and artsy headers that would help separate the different themes discussed in the article.

BuzzFeed & Aussie News Today
I was asked to create a series of interactive maps of Australian territories and the different jobs available when on a holiday visa. I’m ready to head down under and swim with a platypus (that’s not a job, just something I want to do).

Chase & Southwest
This was a cool project to work on because as I was illustrating it, ironically, I was also planning my own couples trip to Denver! This post highlights different spots around Denver that you can use your Southwest Rapid Rewards Chase Credit Card. I love to collage and scrapbook memories, so I tried to incorporate things that I have saved from trips in the past.
A series of dog collages. The dogs are all done by hand, with paper and various ephemeral materials.
Stuff I do just for fun.
Sempre Livre Brazil
This project was for Sempre Livre, a Brazilian tampon company. The idea was to illustrate some of the silly nicknames people have for being on their periods. They wanted to bring awareness in hopes of removing the some of the taboos around periods. For example, in America, we might say “I’m having a visit from Aunt Flow.” These were really fun to do and I hope it helps show how ridiculous some of these really are!
Chuva Vermelha - Red Rain
Tá De Vermelho - Wearing Red
Naqueles Dias - On Those Days
Dinossaurinhos No Útero - Dinosaurs In The Uterus
Tá De Boi - Like a Bull
Visitante Indesejado - Unwanted Visitor
Beauty And The Beast
I was so excited to work on this project. I am a Disney gal and was super pumped for the new live action film. This was also really fun because I got to use my calligraphy skills. I first did traditional blackletter calligraphy on paper, then brought it into Illustrator and cleaned it up. Then I collaged the backgrounds to give them that old bookstore feeling. And look at how freaking beautiful this dinner party was!

Wegmans Organic Greek Yogurt
For this project I worked with fellow Graphic Designer, Jay Fleckenstein, as well as Industrial Designers, Even Cincotta, Brendan Babiarz, and Packaging Science student, Abbey Phillips. Together we created a new and innovative cup for Wegmans Organic Greek Yogurt. Our team came in first place for this competition! Keep a look out on Wegmans' shelves for something that closely resembles what we have created.
Watch the the video below that my team and I created to explain our new packaging.
Little Green Garden
Little Green Garden is a mail-to-order terrarium kit that provides you with all the materials need to build your very own terrarium. The kit comes with a glass bubble, air plant, moss, pebbles, branches, spray bottle, figurines and an instruction booklet.
The pieces of the package were hand cut and then bound with muslin and craft paper.
Objective Help children to engage and explore their environments outside of their technological devices, ironically enough, with an app.
Process Gather information on the effects of continuous use of technology on children’s growth and health. Create a brand that would appeal to both children and parents. Develop a series of kits that children would order and receive in the mail with non-technological activity prompts. Research app design for children. Create an app which would allow users to track their progress and encourage them to keep participating. Develop packaging for kits, as well as advertisements.
I love ice cream which means I also love a good ice cream cone. There is nothing worse than opening your box of cones to discover broken cones. More like broken dreams. We created a premium solution.
Fellow designer, Jay Fleckenstein and I created Penny Licks, a premium waffle cone brand, and with the help of our Packaging Science friends Garrett Parlo and Emma Conrick.
I love to step back from my computer and work with my hands. I enjoy hand lettering, illustrating, lino cuts, letter press and calligraphy.
