2019 Calendars

Desk with calendar and colorful trinkets. Creative studio space.

I designed some fun desk calendars for my clients as gratitude gifts for the new year.

Made with love & gratitude for those that support my work & enable me to do what I love for a living, the design process felt like a meditation in creativity & magic. I hope to explore more of that feeling in future projects! πŸ™πŸŒˆβœ¨


Each page includes my photography, hand drawn illustrations, lettering & some favorite inspirational quotes.

Revisiting some of the beautiful moments captured during my adventures was a wonderful way to reflect on 2018 and the freedom my freelance life provides.

Studio Tour

I thought it would be fun to share a peek in to my home studio + creative workspace! I live in a 1940's brick building in the heart of Seattle's vibrant Capitol Hill neighborhood. What my apartment lacks in space (and air conditioning) it makes up for in plenty of vintage charm & an awesome location close to everything.


Here are a few photos from my portrait session with Alice Malia Photography, featuring my adorable furry sidekick, Greg β€

What are your essentials for a creative workspace that encourages productivity and play? I try to balance lots of tactical, visual inspiration with enough of white space to create more. Also, lots of cats, plants and extra storage for good measure ;)
