I'm a NY based artist + designer specializing in brand identity design, product design + development, packaging design, digital illustration, and website design. With a keen eye for color and balance, a forward-thinking sense of style, and a mind that's constantly thinking of ideas and inventions, I've known from a very young age that I wanted to create for a living. My fascination with ideation has led me to work for in-house design departments creating products, packaging and graphics for leading global retailers like Target, Walmart, Five Below, Whole Foods, and more.
I pride myself in my unique mixture of business and analytical skills, design and fashion sense, and natural artistic talent. When it comes to design, I'm a versatile artist who can adapt my style to whatever is needed for the project at hand, based on trend analyses and target market research. I've designed products that went to market and became top-sellers in the following categories: pet, cannabis, beauty + skincare, home + lifestyle, fashion, stationery, kids, and toys.
Prior to moving to Los Angeles, I lived in New York City for several years where I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology, worked in the home + lifestyle industry, and conducted research, analyzed trends, and worked at major trade shows across the US. During my time at FIT, I received a Bachelor's Degree in an intimate major called Home Product Development + Marketing, which was essentially an intense training program focused on product development, design, sourcing, manufacturing, packaging, marketing and merchandising of consumer products.
In 2018 I quit my full time design job to start my own design agency called Rose + Palm Studio where I provide a variety of creative services for clients in all industries. The following year I launched a cat brand called Kitty Kardboard® which has won the Emerging Brand Award during NY NOW 2021 in NYC.
