I'm designing Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations for my cousin. Here's a sneak peak. Almost done trimming! Stay tuned for the Invitation design.

old to new

Another painstakingly long DIY project is finally complete. Thanks to Pepe's Thrifty Shop in Culver City I was able to find these fantastic chairs locally, and at a great price. Initially I wanted to refinish them, but as I began sanding them down, I realized that their curves and round limbs made that difficult. I think this gray paint looks great instead! Check out my before & after pic.

Here are 3 posters I designed during an in-house freelance gig I had this year. They were intended for a toy company's lobby. I think they went for something more photographic, but I really liked the way these turned out.

I've been working on print collateral for a salon with one of my loyal clients Janae Raphael of Jjems Communications. Here's a sampling of a few printed pieces.

meet me in Montauk

Clementine and Joel in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind introduced me to Montauk, but a friend's wedding brought me there. There was no dilapidated house on a snowy beach, like in the movie, but instead a charming coastal town with warm sandy beaches. A train ride to Manhattan topped off the long weekend with a visit to my favorite lunch spot Veselka, many subway rides and long walks through the city & Brooklyn.

sonoma wedding

I had the pleasure of designing wedding invitations for a couple getting married in beautiful Sonoma. The main invitation was letterpressed and the rest of the items were printed offset using blue and gold inks on cream colored paper. My dear friend Cara Nelson designed the beautiful floral arrangements.


This was supposed to happen about 5 years ago. Finally I took a chunk of my Saturday to check this project off my list of things to do. The upholstery was done by a great little mom & pop shop in Venice on Lincoln called Add-A-Chair Upholstery 310-396-4674.

laser cut

My friend Maggie is getting married! Her bridal shower invitation included this delicate laser cut bird motif, which I love. She's a master printmaker with mad skills

Save the Date

A stylish San Franciscan couple approached me to design their wedding invitation. This is their Save the Date printed on Classic Crest Windsor Blue paper with light green and gold inks. This project has been a delight to work on...more to come!

line drawing

I've always loved architectural drawings — maybe it's their graphic nature. R.M Schindler, an architect whose most important projects are here in Los Angeles, has a really interesting drawing style.

My very dear friend Shelley from childhood gave me these fantastic etchings many many years ago that she made, and I thought I'd lost them! Recently found in a box of keep-sakes, they're next home will be in their frames on my wall.

Bird Machine

This is some of my favorite work from Jay Ryan, a Chicago based screen printer.

Tangle Trees

My mom's (Jeanne Dunn) new series of paintings has many dimensions — I find them to be eerie and dream-like, evoking feelings of solitude and quiet. I love this group of new work.

Christmas Gift

My husband and I went to an art opening with my parents in November for painter Stephen Curry. We all were really drawn to his graphic series of wood panel paintings. To our delight, my parents bought us one of his pieces for Christmas! We aren't sure which one it is, but can't wait until the show comes down so we can get our hands on it.
