I'm a printmaker creating visual content for architects, builders and home owners.


Passive House Print

I can help position your firm as an expert on the leading edge of the Passive House standard - and rise above the growing sea of 'shadow' builders.


Living on Display

I'm more than your average content creator, I'm a committed conservation educator and advocate for the high performance building industry in North America.


Weekly Dispatches

Our culture is increasingly visual, seeking connection & meaning. I believe storytelling - and data - can engage a greater audience and help move this industry forward.


Effectively communicate your design & build story and gain the credibility your project deserves.


Commission Work & Content Creation

What I love about the print process is that it’s part design planning and working with my hands. There is just enough order and just enough play.

About Me

A background in design and an interest in sustainability led me to the the unique opportunity to live in a demonstration passive house where I was a project ambassador, facilitated public tours, AND completed an artist residency.

My professional career has provided me a unique perspective and knowledge in the areas of small business management, creative marketing, community development and sustainability - all of which influence my personal work as printmaker and content designer.

Speaking & Partnerships

Passive House at Alt Summit


How My Brand was Born in a Passive House

I’ll be presenting my story of living and growing a creative business in a Passive House with 2000+ attendees at ALT OASIS!

My workshop is title Layers of Experience: Meaningful Making and the Creatively Sustained Lifestyle, where I’ll share how my love for creating print & pattern found renewed purpose when combined with my residency in a Passive House.

ALT OASIS takes place March 24-29th, 2019 in Palm Springs CA. Attendees are open-minded, smart, and design-conscious. They are intentional about their life and their purchases, and freely share what they've learned. I can’t wait to share how better buildings can positively impact the planet with a new, and influential, audience!
