My design specialty is brands for small businesses. I collaborate with passionate people to bring the heart of their brands to the surface and showcase it through strategic and well-crafted design.
I don’t want to just make something ‘pretty’, I want it to mean something. I do this by getting to know my clients and their businesses as well as their audience. When I learn about them and their heart, inevitably I discover the heart of their brand.
I have always been “artsy” since I was young. I took every art class I could through school and then pursued design in college. Growing up along with computers and their growth, it only made sense to merge the amazing advances of software with my artistic abilities. I have done design work since 2008 and have continued to hone in on my abilities while striving to learn the different styles that are constantly emerging.
I have had the privilege of working in many different types of environments. I freelanced through school working for church organizations, a construction company, as well as bridal salons and businesses in the wedding industry. After graduating I was the lead designer for a small medical company based in the Woodlands that specialized in hearing devices. I then became part of a team of designers that worked for the global hair company Farouk Systems - manufacturers of CHI and Biosilk.
I worked in corporate environments until the end of this year after the feeling I was being called to do something more. This past year has been a growing experience for me in my profession and in my faith. I've learned that my satisfaction for life rests in the presence of my Savior, and I have no need to fear the future. My business, whether it blows up (good or bad) will not change the passion that I have for it and the yearning I have for contributing to the lives and businesses of others. I strive to be helpful, compassionate, and educational in all of my projects and business relationships.
You can often find me waltzing around the house in over-sized batman tees and messy hair with no makeup. I was born and raised in Texas and still live within 20min of my old stomping grounds as a kid. I live in a small house (that constantly stays dirty) with my amazing husband and my 3 adorable children. The oldest is a super fluffy calico, whom my husband found dumped in his parents front yard. We named her Audrey due to her pretty nature and gorgeous big round eyes. The next addition to the family was Willow, a black great dane who has the sweetest most loving personality. It’s true that they are gentle giants, I only slightly disagree when she steps on my foot. Lastly, is Watson. He was adopted and the last of his litter. He seems to be stuck in puppy phase, and usually gets what he wants with the big puppy-dog eyes he uses against us.
My husband and I met on Myspace (hides face in shame), and soon began talking every day. We quickly learned that we lived in the same neighborhood, went to the same schools, and even rode the same bus! To think that we had never noticed one another until college! We were married in November of 2013, and he is by far the most amazing man, and my best friend.
Our goal is to move somewhere gorgeous. A place that has mountains and maybe even snow. I am in constant awe of life, nature, and grace and you will find these are great influences in my work. It’s my goal to be able to take my freelancing anywhere God leads. Until then I will just daydream of hiking, and having quiet-time on a porch that overlooks the wonders of nature and God’s glory.
