"I'm a designer, maker, creative thinker, and mother."
Hello! I'm a graphic designer specializing in brand identity, special occasion stationery, surface design, and book design. I have a BFA in Illustration and Graphic Design from the State University of New York at Buffalo. For over 10 years I’ve been designing and making, 9 of those years has been dedicated to book design. In 2006 I started my design and lifestyle blog Freshlyblended and kept that running until I had my first daughter in 2009, I started back up briefly in 2010, and made the decision to retire the blog in 2012. Since then I've designed and produced handmade paper goods and original prints under Freshlyblended Press while doing custom work for weddings and small businesses. My work has been featured on numerous design blogs such as Decor8, Bloesem, Design for Mandkind, Poppytalk and have been published in Uppercase magazine.
I Live in a little house in Buffalo NY with my husband Jason, two beautiful daughters and two kitty cats. We are kind of a wacky family. I strive to be the best mom I can be to my girls, sometimes it's a challenge but most times its the best time spent of my life. I come from a long line of makers and craftsmen (women), I believe in the quality of handmade and precision work whether it be digital or by hand. I'm also a nature freak who loves organization, crocheting, and patterns. I am very much inspired by Scandinavian design, folk art and minimalism.
