If I weren’t an illustrator I would be…

I’ve been super interested in astrology and healing arts, so possibly that. Or a chef, I love cooking.

My definition of a “modern” mystic is…

someone who is able to take the ancient rituals of the past and imbue them with the tools of today’s technology so that they can experience magic, healing, and transformation in their daily lives.

The main reason I love tarot cards is…

tarot gives you perspective, allows you to listen to your inner voice, and enhances your intuition.

In three words my studio is…

cozy, vibrant, and fun.

My spirit animal is…

the owl. I’ve also had connections with the panther and wolf.

My best ideas come to me when…

my soul is nourished.

My definition of success is…

sustained happiness. To reach an inner fulfillment where you are in complete harmony with your mind, body, and soul.

My favorite guilty pleasure is…

chocolate and more chocolate.

My financial goal is to…

have complete freedom in my personal choices. To be wealthy in all aspects of life, including health, relationships, and love.

My ideal Saturday afternoon is…

morning hikes with my puppy Panther, followed by a chill coffee and book afternoon.

My three favorite designers working
today are…

There are so many! Piera Gelardi for creating Refinery29 into the positive media outlet for women today. Tina Roth-Eisenberg for creating her heart-driven business centered around communities. As a freelancer, I typically work solo so it’s been so important for me to connect to like-minded folks. Leta Sobierajski for putting her own unique spin on her work.
