I am an illustrator, designer and printer. My subject matter is often things that strike me as beautiful in my daily life, plants and animals and folk stories. I also work in cut paper and love to make lightboxes from my papercut images. I am largely a screen printer and often design my work based upon setting up art for screen printing, but I also have a background in letterpress printing and digital design.
I currently am one of four owners of Ocelot Print Shop, a community screen printing shop and artist's collective in Detroit's Cass Corridor. Ocelot Print Shop is dedicated to providing a collaborative work space to members of the community, offering non-traditional education in the form of classes and skill shares, and offering full screen print services. I feel very fortunate to have been part of creating a space that is an amazing place to come to work every day, where I get to meet and exchange ideas with great people.
In my free time (ha ha what is that?!?!) I am the mother of a very inquisitive three year old, own a 116 year old house with a large hoop house and garden in the back yard and enjoy listening to audiobooks while knitting or cleaning and organizing.
