I try to make things that are nice to look at. My design and illustration include drawing, painting, prints, handwriting. I collect handmade paper, random objects, other people's junk and old stuff that has a whole new life left to live.
My husband is a fixer and makes many of my ideas come to life. Our 3 kids love to make things too. They are a constant source of inspiration (and free labor). They use wood filler like play dough, sand chairs and request to paint outside and "rinse" their brushes in snowbanks on warm winter days in New Hampshire where we live.
I was commissioned to illustrate a piece for Vanguard’s cover story on how political accountability has affected our government's capacity to get things done. The writer posited that lobbyists were taking advantage of these checks and balances, making it more difficult for officials to draft and execute new reforms and public works.
