A challenge

Sometimes a logo comes up that COULD be so wrong.

I am a hopeful person and I believe people can be renewed.

So out of a difficult acronym (which was very important too)

and a complex non-profit action plan the following logo was born.


The brochure for C.A.S.H.


Jasmine in the air.

I have not checked out this scent in person (remote designing again) but I am sure I will like it.

The creators of this are sophisticated and have INCREDIBLE taste.

If you are ever in Mendocino, CA check out their shop Gallery of the Senses, 45050 Main St.


lathering up!

Not only does this soap smell unbelievable, it is also silky smooth and makes your skin feel soft and clean!

This design was for Mendocino Soap Company (Gallery of the Senses, 45050 Main St., Mendocino)

another favorite from the childhood collection…

When I was a kid my grandparents bought me comic books to encourage me to keep up with swedish. This book is in the comic book format… I love it still! The illustrator’s name is Zdenek Miler.

Artisan wine

I’m very excited to announce that soon -October 15th- Artwork created by my husband and I will appear on a wine label. The wine is found here. Our little bio is found here.

The art is entitled “The Wedding” and it is a photograph created by my husband that I then painted and applied silverleaf onto, it was a part of a group show in Mendocino entitled ” Honoring the Feminine”

The tasting notes on the wine are as follows: “Inky dark red in color, aromas of black cherry, graphite, licorice and tea leaves draw you into the glass. Black cherry carries through to the palate, joined by boysenberry, dark plum, a touch of chocolate and a hint of blueberry, gently embraced by fine tannins through a velvet finish that begs for another sip.”

YUM! Hope you get a chance to try it, I can just taste it now….

One of my all time favorite children’s books…

There is a reason why I became the illustrator that I am today. My mother read books to me at night for many years, it started with picture books and continued on to Astrid Lindgren’s incredible stories.

One of the most memorable picture books was certainly Tove Janssons layered and magical “Hur Gick Det Sen?”

This is published in English too but my favorite is the swedish language version. 


You can find the book at Abe books here

Feeling uninspired? Look at nature!

These guys are just the sweetest. You just can’t get more design-y than the spots on a giraffe. Don’t you just love nature? This was a shot taken by my husband at Safari West in Napa, California. What an adventure.

unchartered waters:
finding your path and enjoying the journey
I am trying to find a path, find a voice and make it true.
Making a living would be a nice bonus as well.
