about

a little about me

Growing up in Evansville, Indiana, USA, my mother would always remind me that our ancestors, her great-grandfather, came to America from Ireland, so I've always been drawn to the Emerald Isle. While travelling in Dublin in August 2009, I met the love of my life and that began the start of one of the biggest adventures God has ever taken me on! In October 2010, Johann and I got married and then I moved over to Dublin in November so we could start our new life together.

Besides having a passion for the Irish and this land, I also have a passion for art and design. As far back as I can remember, I spent much of my free time doing anything having to do with art, drawing, and being creative. I've always been an out-of-the-box thinker, and love to find my own way of doing things. My desire is that my creativity will shine through in all of my designs.

Receiving my Bachelor of Science Degree in Interior Design was the launching pad for my future career in design. After graduating, I have had over ten years of design experience working for both individuals and major companies. My focus is primarily print design, but I have also been branching out into the digital world over the last couple of years.

I am truly blessed to be in this season in my life, and I give all honor and glory to my Creator, the One who has given me this talent!
