but for the first time in my life, i felt like I had a purpose.
i signed up for immersion, deep dived into it, then devoted my entire spare time working on patterns after patterns around my toddler's nap time and just, trusted the process.
in my late 30's, i had to close my etsy shop because it was no longer working out for me. desperate and depressed, one day...
I've worked with some big names like Target, RICE and Nordstrom and it's like living a dream.
My income is diversified and it doesn't have a limit.
I can work any where and any time I want.
i'm so grateful that I took the leap of faith. though the journey wasn't without challenges, i created a life far better than i've ever imagined. today...
I've been there too, and I know what it's like to dream big and want to make your mark in the world.
My journey as a surface pattern designer has taught me so much, and I'm here to share the knowledge I've gained. Whether you're starting from scratch or looking to level up your skills, I provide mentorship and guidance to help you navigate the wild world of surface design.
So, if you're ready to turn your creative dreams into reality and make your mark in the world, I'm here to support you every step of the way.
The freedom my business gives me!

I love chatting with other surface designer and artists. There is so much wisdom from each interview that I often find myself referring back to it from time to time. Whenever I listen to the stories about their trials and tribulations, it always make me feel seen and a little less lonely.
