art direction + design + production
My love of art and design flourished from an early age. With a background in painting and drawing, a fondness for pattern and color, and a playful imagination, I naturally found my way to designing and art directing books for children.
Today I have twenty years of experience working with clients like Chronicle Books, Disney, JIMMY Patterson Books, Scholastic, Sterling, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Peaceable Kingdom, and KiwiCo. I art direct and design unique covers and interiors for the adult and children’s markets as well as develop formats, and manage and execute book, book-plus, and gift projects. My skills also include creating marketing collateral, collaborating with licensors, building schedules, generating budgets, overseeing vendors, manipulating images, color correcting, and typesetting.
As a San Diego based designer, I love spending time on the beach with my two daughters and two pups. When I’m not designing, you’ll find me advocating for animals.
