ILLUSTRATION | My illustration work is heavily influenced by natural elements, my deep interest in plant medicine, art as a means to heal. I have settled comfortably in a combination of watercolor, ink, pencil and digital media. More recently, I’ve grown a deeper joy for creative illustration + pattern requests, either to support local business, or personal creative desire, like a custom printed piece, or tattoo!
DESIGN | My design work is both in print and web. I have carried a small, but steady clientele for many years and continue to support those and other upcoming entrepreneurs in their pursuit to grow organically in the community! My approach to design embodies the mind, body and spirit of the brand/person, no matter the application or size of the project. Often, clients (which become friends) will tell me that my organic approach to working and communicating allows for a much more stress-free ebb and flow to an element of their business they once found overwhelming.
In order to offer the most effective attention to design clients, I take on only a select few projects at a time. Just like a fine chocolate, n'GRAINED works in small batches…
HAND-CRAFTING | The hand-crafting I do is a combination of wood working, creating custom wooden signage, painting, or hand-crafted jewelry. I grew up in a house of "crafting". Coming from a family of creatives, it has become a language for us, in a sense. Though it is silent, it is a very rewarding way to communicate and I enjoy creating, crafting items that bring that awareness and importance of "hand crafted" to others.
When I'm not doodling, designing or crafting, I'm often with my hands in the dirt, planting, on a side road or trail exploring, or in the kitchen cooking!
