Dad & Me, around 1970

Dad & Me, around 1970

my background

Born and raised just outside of N.Y.C. I now live in Atlanta with my family. One of my earliest memories was crying on the way to kindergarten because my crayons were not sharp enough! My dad was kind enough to stop and buy me a new pack that morning so I went to school happy. I was born (practically) with crayon in hand and have been drawing ever since. Upon graduating with a degree in Illustration from the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, I was hired as an artist for a small sleepwear company. From there I continued in Sleepwear design for another manufacturer but doing more repeat patterns and licensed design. Working as a Disney Consumer Products Licensee was instrumental in learning Design. I still use tidbits I learned from their talented designers to this day. After 10 years of sleepwear, I went on to design licensed bedding and other fun home textiles for kids. After relocating in 2007 to Atlanta, I started working from my home studio and branched out to other types of design including custom Logos, Illustration, Rug Design and Hand Lettering. My work can be seen on a variety of products...check out the PRODUCTS page. I am available for contract work and for licensing. Check in and say hi!
