In 2002 I joined the yearbook club. My high school was a tiny cluster of about 300 kids in a rural NH town. I had already taken numerous Graphic Design classes, and knew that it was what I was called to do. This club seemed like a natural next - step. We had more fun picking out class photos, senior superlatives, and often fought over where to put which picture.
I always think back to our club with great nostalgia, but what I relish most is remembering long hours hovering over the computer, juggling my notebook, an x-acto knife, and different layout designs. The smell of rubber cement and old photographs coming together were captivating and I could spend hours surrounded by these things. It was this club that led me to apply to Fine Arts school to earn my BFA from Colby- Sawyer College. It was this club that started it all for me, and almost 20 years later, I am still surrounded by the very things that light my soul on fire, and make me so excited to wake up and work every single day.
You can find me organizing my pantry, meal prepping, cooking, at the fields watching my boys play sports, weeding in the garden (it never ends!) or hiking on the trails close to my house. Most nights I am cuddled on the couch with my puppy Georgia watching reruns of The Office or reading until my eyes hurt.
I could live off of chips and guacamole and my go to drink is a Mojito.
I live to embarrass my children, or that’s what they think. Coupled with the fact that I am mortifying to them, I also know they wouldn’t have me any other way. I’m not about being basic, especially as a mom.
I love traveling! I find that it keeps my creativity flowing, and I learn so much about design from other cultures! Seeing new parts of the world inspires me and allows me to rest and reset!
