I'm a paper artist and illustrator based in San Francisco. I work on anything from two- and three-dimensional paper pieces that are photographed and retouched for editorial images and social media posts to large scale window installations and photoshoot props. In any format, my aim is to tell a story with the work. I've been working with cut paper for over ten years and love the challenge of representing anything out of paper. My tool of choice is a #24 Excel knife (the fat kind).
Because it's hard to know what a "paper artist" actually does...
- Paper art creation
- Illustration concepting
- Prop styling
- Photography and photo retouching
- Stop motion photography
- Workshop and class instruction
- Public speaking
- Visual strategy
My professional experience hasn't always been strictly paper-related. In fact, I'm grateful to have meandered through the fields of graphic and product design and business and design strategy, as well as teaching and museum curation. Having these varying perspectives means that I love to partner with clients from the early stages of visual development to concept and illustrate a meaningful story.
I'm always up for collaborations! Feel free to contact me for inquiries, feedback, and hellos.
