I am an artist and freelance textile print and pattern designer living and working in Philadelphia, PA, USA.
I am passionate about fusing traditional handcrafted techniques with digital production methods to achieve colorful and unique art and design for apparel and accessories. I find inspiration in nature, vintage textiles, adventures, global cultures, folklore, and mysticism.
My design process is hands on and involves drawing, painting, and relief printmaking before designs are scanned into the computer, cleaned, edited and manipulated in Photoshop, Illustrator or NED Graphics.
My keen eye for detail has helped me to excel at artwork preparation for production. For me, creating seamless repeats is like solving a puzzle. When print mill specifications are added to the mix it only makes me all the more excited to take on the challenge of creating something visually appealing and executable.
I have experience developing print collections and preparing artwork for production in the apparel industry. I have worked with Target's Juniors brand Mossimo Supply Co, Lilly Pulitzer, and Urban Outfitters Menswear.
I love to work on collaborative projects with other designers and creative directors. Please contact me to see what we can come up with for your next project!
