BIO

I’m a Designer, creative director, illustrator and mother working across multiple media. I work directly with clients and collaborate with a network of talented people. I've worked in London, Helsinki, Los Angeles, Mexico City and Berkeley for big and small clients, running my own design practice, in agency and corporate environments.

I've received recognition from the Museum of Architecture and Design in Chicago, The Creative Review, The Association of Mexican Graphic Designers and The American Institute of Graphic Arts, among others.
