I live in rainy Portland, Oregon with my husband, son and two standard poodles.
Having studied fine art, I drifted to design and illustration, but have always played around with surface design.
Lately I have been appreciating some mid century artists and designers, like Ruth Asawa for her elegant shapes, and Alexander Girard for his playfulness.
With my design I tried to come up with an illustration that would evoke a story. I liked the idea of a child enraptured with the night, and I wanted to make it both exciting and reassuring. I imagined all the animals that inhabit the night, and the boy safe and cozy in his home.
