The Maker:

 "I am a graphic designer / maker currently working from my hometown of Knoxville, TN. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Tennessee with a Bachelor Degree of Architecture. Architecture school turned out to be much different than working in an architecture office. I started missing working with my hands, building models, sketching, designing, working through a problem 100 times until I found the perfect solution. With the encouragement of my mom, I started my own business in 2010 making and selling paper items. It felt like architecture school again - working for hours on a new design that I just couldn't put down, thinking of a new product and problem solving so I could make the product as efficiently and cost effectively as possible, seeing a concept turn into a real thing from beginning to end.  When I started my business, I worked out of the back of my mom's hair salon with a table, a printer, and a cabinet full of paper. I worked after salon hours from 8pm until 4am and designed during the day. After a year, I moved my studio into a shed in my parents' backyard, then to an apartment, and later, a rental house where my studio occupied two spare bedrooms. My studio grew as my business grew. I started out just making paper items, and my business has since grown to include screen printed apparel, magnets, ornaments, and mugs.

Growing up, I was always the pessimistic eye-roller of the family. My cynical greeting cards have become my most popular. You can probably also tell from my work that I love the south, puppy dogs, bright colors, confetti, and sweets. My faithful sidekick, Lux, has become quite popular with my fans. I think some people only follow me on Instagram to see what she's up to every day. She's my muse and helps with production on occasion too!"
