It's also fair to include burnt orange, goldenrod and blue (any shade will do) among my favorites. That's what you were hoping to find out on this page, right?

I live in Detroit with my husband, cat and dog in a charming little house, where I do most of my design & illustration work.

Snow + Ivy was established in 2012, after I had made the decision to focus primarily on stationery design. I had recently moved back to Michigan, after working for three years as a freelance graphic designer in Brooklyn, NY. My experience there was invaluable: providing me with the opportunity to work on a variety of design projects and to uncover my almost nerdy obsession with the stationery design world. Since that time, I have been honored to see my work in a variety of publications and online retailers, including Better Homes & Gardens, Stationery Trends Magazine, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Paper Crave, The Today Show, and – as well as around town in the form of logos and outdoor signage for local businesses, including The Detroit Flyhouse in Eastern Market, and The Bearded Lady, in Corktown.

And what about the name? As a kid, my family always had dogs... but our first two dogs were one-of-a-kinds. Ivy was loving and gentle, and Snow was one of the sweetest souls I've ever known. For me, the names Snow and Ivy represent that magical time in my life when being a kid meant endless hours of making art 'just because', making every minute an exercise in creativity, and eagerly exploring the unknown.
