I am an Oakland, CA based Multidisciplinary Artist, Designer, and Entrepreneur. My work uses empowered symbols and dreamlike textures to create psychedelic, feminine, and playful art objects, experiences, and products that invite awareness and, ultimately, healing.

In 2011 I founded Magic Carpet Yoga Mats, yoga mats printed with hand painted textile designs. I also direct, produce, and offer creative direction for editorial photography, film, and performance art.

My greatest joy is collaborating on next level projects that embody truth telling, emotional emancipation, and exercising an unapologetically free spirit.

I believe the humorous and endearing can heal, that camp can be chic, and that there is strength in vulnerability.
