I'm a visual artist and freelance textile designer/illustrator. I've been living in San Francisco for ten years. Originally from the east coast, I lived in Brooklyn after art school in Rhode Island before moving to California to get my MFA. I travel to New York once or twice a year to visit family and friends and to keep up with the arts. My husband and I also travel often for work and fun. We enjoy the local experience of staying in apartments rather than hotels and love good restaurants, museums, coffee, book stores, films, and live music.
