About

I'm an experienced graphic designer who has switched gears into full-time motherhood and professional art/illustration.

My primary interest is in the revival of Western iconography within the Catholic tradition. Much of my inspiration is drawn from medieval illuminated manuscripts and the way these early graphic designers combined beautiful illustrations and text to connect people intimately with the daily rhythms of life, the cycle of seasons, the liturgy, and beyond to the transcendent. Medieval art contains a symbolic visual language that communicates immaterial realities that can't be experienced directly through the senses. Further, my compositions are all geometry based, which allows me to express the same sense of wonder that mathematicians find in the hidden order and harmony of the universe.

All of my work is undertaken prayerfully in the context of a daily prayer life and regular reception of the sacraments. My logomark is a quatrefoil-shaped window, indicating my hope that somehow my inadequate work will open a small window revealing Christ's healing grace, love, and beauty.

I live in Seattle, WA with my beloved husband and five children.
