So thrilling to see 100s of people carrying my art

at the baseball game!

I love making art. Always have. When I was young, my dad was my supplier - he'd bring me pads of blank paper from his office to draw on. We lived in Evanston, IL which happened to be not far from the 2nd Crate & Barrel ever, in Wilmette. It was there I first saw and fell in love with Marimekko fabric. Being the 70s, we had Marimekko "unpaintings" everywhere, so I was always surrounded by pattern & color. Oh, and Steinberg prints. Everywhere you looked.


I spent summers at Tom Harris's "Art Camp". When Mr. Harris, who had a 36" diameter afro, closed his school a couple years back, I went to the closing sale, and some of my pieces were still on his wall, 30+ years later. He wouldn't let me buy them.


Today I am a commercial artist/pattern designer/product maker. I sell my prints and handmade art products here on the Shop! page, as well as on Etsy, and Amazon


I have 100s of patterns available for license (click on "Pattern" above to see a smattering) (I have many, many others) - florals, paisleys, geometrics, holiday, etc.... You'll see watercolor, collage, digital, and lots of combos of those.


My pug Murray is The Intern.

He works very, very hard.


We live in Chicago.
