B&W J

Hey there! I'm so glad you're here. Let me introduce myself.

I’m an illustrator and lettering artist, from the San Francisco Bay Area. My road to illustration work has been long and circuitous, traveling through business school and the corporate world in my twenties, motherhood and a creative writing degree in my thirties, and the astonishing discovery that I liked to draw in my forties. That was an absolute surprise, and I haven’t stopped arting since.

I wrote and illustrated the self-love journal, Find Your Awesome (HCI BOOKS), and I've had the pleasure of collaborating with amazing authors like Marci Schimoff, Jack Canfield, and Rokelle Lerner. My writing has been published in literary journals and on websites such as Huffington Post, Mind Body Green, BeliefNet, and The Rumpus. Want more? You can read about 100 years worth of blog posts I've written here.

My favorite work combines all my loves - illustration, lettering, and writing - and if my art makes you smile or reminds you to notice the astonishing wonder that is our world, then I've done my job. I love to work with like-hearted creatives, clients and publishers, making art that is both purposeful and celebratory. If you think we'd be a good fit, let's talk. I love collaborations and am excited to hear your ideas!
