Throughout my 15 years as a designer, art director, and illustrator, I've helped many clients develop carefully thought out projects that speak to their vision, culture, and accomplish their goals. I would love to partner with you to add this kind of value to your business by creating a strong and attractive first impression with a visual identity package that communicates exactly what your company is all about.

I've been drawing, designing, and whipping up all kinds of creative projects as long as I can remember. At 5 years old, this Illinois girl packed a box of stuffed animals and Crayola markers to get ready for a college career in art. While that box didn't stay packed for long—my favorite bear was inside!—when I did finally get to college, I made graphic design my major and continued to develop a great love of typography, hand lettering, bookbinding, and illustration. 

If you visited my studio today, you might find me listening to audio books (mysteries are my favorite) while sketching out concepts and designing up a storm on my Mac. I blog about art and current projects, and I sell prints and books in my Etsy shop.

In addition to "designer," I am also a wife, mom, and Jesus-follower. Outside of the studio, I enjoy hanging out with my husband and little girl, and yoga. I sketch and journal (often combining the two), try to keep letter-writing alive, and read fiction while drinking hazelnut lattés.

about lute + harp

Lute and Harp is the name I've given to my creative endeavors. The lyrics of Psalm 150 inspired the name. I believe that whatever I do—art or otherwise—I should be working to bring praise and glory to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

Praise Him with trumpet sound;
praise Him with lute and harp!
... Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
— Psalm 150:3, 6a
