Thanks for stopping by my site. I am a Portland based illustrator and hand lettering designer. I grew up in Copenhagen and moved to California in 2004 to attend Art Center College of Design where I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration with Distinction.

I work from my illustration studio in NE Portland where my husband who is a furniture designer/maker  (www.ryandonohoe.com) also has his wood shop. 

I love clean, simple graphic design and illustrations with lots of personality.

My favorite thing is to draw people at conferences and at the airport. I also love spending time outdoors and it is usually after spending time in the mountains or by the beach that I come up with my most creative ideas.

I also co-founded the Portland Lettering Collective, a monthly hand lettering meetup. Learn more about our next meetup on our instagram page: instagram.com/letterpdx

I always work on personal projects and love working on a variety of professional projects. So please feel free to email me if you want to collaborate or if you have a project you think I might be right for. Or if you just want to say Hi. Thanks again for stopping by my website.
