Mantra :: “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” ~Marilyn Monroe

With art as my passion and an intense eye for design, I find small joys in the beauty of every day life. I am inspired by many things: food, travel, our 107-year-old home that we so graciously love in the cathedral neighbourhood here in Regina and by my colleague Carmen who continues to amaze me on a daily basis. I was fortunate to have started my graphic design career in Calgary, where I must say ‘pushes the envelope’ in the creative world and has challenged me to be where I am today.

Mantra :: I’d rather be a Rider than a $*%&(# Eskimo!!

They say home is where the heart is and for me that could not be more true. After graduating from art school in Calgary, I soon found the call of home beckoning me back to Sask. Well, here’s to making good choices! I count my blessings everyday for the wonderful things that returning home to Saskatchewan has provided me. Sunday dinners with family, ordering a Pilsner without getting a dirty look and somehow, being in the right place at the right time to run into my future boss lady (and busiest bee I have EVER met), Chelsey. Working at bark* has given me the chance to work with some amazing clients and really push myself as a designer. Here’s hoping there’s so much more to come! Let’s make some ‘art’!!!

Mantra :: The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination ~Einstein

Born in BC, I came to Sask a few years ago and haven't looked back! After graduating from Simon Fraser University, I knew that I wanted to continue flexing my graphic design muscle and found Bark* Design Studio. I'm so grateful to come into work and LOVE my job everyday while learning so much. I'm a sponge! On the weekends you'll find me hanging with my pup, finding a campfire, or making delicious food.
