“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” - Audrey Hepburn
I was born and raised in small town South Carolina by an
engineer and a schoolteacher. I was always a creative mind and loved
playing with paints and made various collages out of scrap paper. I
ended up with a Bachelor of Science in college and after college, I was
lucky to find a job as a Graphic Designer, where I honed my skills
working for an advertising firm and a screen-printing company.
When my husband and I moved to Austin in 2008, I took the opportunity to refresh my career. I began to draw again and put my screen-printed illustrations on Etsy. With a lot of hard work, my business took off and I felt a need to expand. That's when I dusted off the old sewing machine and started to create my own textiles, which turned into a successful home goods line. Austin was the perfect place to develop my style with influences from nature, my east Austin neighborhood, and my Native American roots. I'm incredibly grateful and lucky to make a living doing what I love and with every piece I create, I hope to bring a small feeling of that love.
I currently live in Brooklyn with my ever-so-supportive Chef husband and our animal family. We love exploring the streets of NYC, eating hand-pulled noodles in Chinatown, and going for "squirrel chases" in the park with our dog, Oslo.
