Line & Lure
Seated inside the brand new ilani Casino, in Ridgefield Washington, Line&Lure seafood restaurant asked me to design and finish three large chalkboard menus and three bar chalkboard menus. From start to finish this project took a total of 72 hours and was done in 4.5 days. I was able to borrow scaffolding from an electric company to ensure that I could complete the project. If it was not for the kindness of all the people working for Swinerton Builders. Each menu was GIANT! Dinner menu: 20’x7’, lunch menu 15’x7’, entrance sign 5.5’x8’, and three bar menus all 5’x2.5’. I literally had no idea I was capable to do this, let alone in 72 hours!
Grateful Bread, Duvall Launch
Grateful Bread opened their new cafe as of July 6th, 2018, and I was the lucky participant to design their new cafe, and build their new chalkboard menus.
Artwork from current to 2003
Halfway through my junior year of high school I transferred from jazz choir to art for my elective. 7 years in jazz choir, three years in Vivace (all girls elite jazz choir), I just decided it was time for a change and wow! I was glad I did! Mentored by an incredible art teacher and my grandmother who is an incredible oil painter, I dedicated myself to art. I have worked on commission paintings, jewelry designs for Shannon Koszkyk, and private label lighting for Curry & Co. I have used these years of experience to facet my painting brush and skills to canvas.
