I practice two design disciplines: Graphic Design and Surface Design. As a graphic designer, I work with businesses to help them express and promote their brand through strategic design. As a Surface Designer, I create patterns and illustrations for fabric, giftware, apparel and other markets. I’ve found that my more recent path into surface design has benefited my branding clients, as custom patterns and illustrations can be a highly effective way to differentiate and add personality to a brand.
I began my career after graduating from art school, with a degree in Visual Communications. After earning my stripes as a designer at various design studios for a number of years, I launched my business in 2008. Though I have a lot of experience in the design world, I am still actively learning, evolving, and love what I do.
When not in my studio, I’m typically off galavanting around in the mountains, recharging my creative energy and gathering inspiration for my surface design work. My hometown of Cochrane Alberta is next to the Canadian Rockies, where I love to hike, mountain bike and snowboard.
