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! 🙏🌈✨

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.

Let's celebrate! Galentines Day

I'm so excited to share my first stationery line, the Galentines Collection available now!

Why Galentines Day? It's all about celebrating friendship! This started as a personal project last year with a few handmade cards, inspired by & made to celebrate the most badass babes I know - strong, brave, creative & courageous people working hard & following their dreams to make the world a better & more beautiful place. ♥

I hope you enjoy my Galentines Day inspiration round up: a few party ideas, inspiration board, mini gift guide & girl powered playlists! I'd love to hear how you'll be celebrating your friends this year!
