Art has always been a life long interest and passion of mine. After obtaining a degree in fine art from California Lutheran University, I transitioned into a graphic design career. First working for a comic book company, then for a design agency in Santa Monica, California where I designed toy packaging and business collateral. Ultimately, I founded Smudge Design Co. in 2003, naming the company after my beloved pug Smudge.

While spending an extensive amount of time traveling, I discovered most of my creative inspirations are fueled by these unique experiences. When I'm not painting or designing, I practice yoga and foster pugs.

My art is currently available through retailers including Minted,, and Joss & Main.
