I love working with organizations to amplify their missions. I love designing books (for kids and adults alike). I love making impactful imagery that appeals to one's eye, mind, & heart.

As an independent graphic designer /  art director / illustrator based in Madison, WI, I design both print and digital visuals for an array of clients — including quite a few non-profits as well as a collection of publishers. Recent clients include: More Smiles Wisconsin, Experience Camps, Madison Public Library Foundation, Madison Conservatory, Rebel Girls Books, a360media, Wisconsin Dental Pain Protocol, Hometown Smiles, Gakken Books, Stonesong Press, HarperCollins, and the American Playwriting Foundation. Even more clients and earlier work is visible on my previous website


Background: with a B.A. in Art History from Swarthmore College and a life-time of combining text and doodles (sign/calendar/card maker deluxe), I dove in to the official world of graphic design through evening design classes at San Francisco City College and working as the art assistant at Mondo 2000 magazine. Next, while living in NYC, I was hired as art director for a couple of media companies (first New Video; then Stim, an early pop culture online magazine). I also began designing books — starting with boing boing's Happy Mutant Handbook — and then later as the co-owner of a 2-woman design shop in Manhattan (pink design, inc.) where we focused on book design. After that and through today, I've been solo freelancing, with the 2010 – 2022 period including the position of art director for children's book publisher Downtown Bookworks. I developed and designed the look for their full line of books and sales materials, worked closely with the editors and illustrators to make engaging books for kids, and created series looks for the licensed brands' books (including a successful line of DC Super Hero books and PBS Kids science kits). All these books can be seen at
