Designing with purpose-driven brands and people to tell visual stories that make the world a better place.
Hi, I'm Kelly.
freelance illustrator x designer for purpose-driven people and brands.
While living in Southeast Asia, I found a creative outlet in the world of digital illustration that blended my love of art & cultures. I'm based in North Carolina with my husband, James, and daughter, Sienna.
I love creating in themes of travel, culture, humanitarian efforts, and environmental sustainability!

I BELIEVE THAT PURPOSE AND ADVENTURE INSPIRED BY VISUAL STORIES CAN DRAW PEOPLE ACROSS CULTURES & INTO THE UNKNOWN FOR THE GREATER GOOD.
compelling stories MAKE a difference.
"Good stories teach survival skills."
That truth has stuck with me ever since I heard it, and impacts the way I create. Why do we, as humans, gravitate to stories? We love messages that teach us how to brave life. We love messages that show us how others have braved life. And tories that resonate with us can shape how we see the world.
Sometimes, these stories are best understood visually. If a message can't be best or easily captured by a photo, illustration is a kindred spirit.
Limitless in creative freedom, illustrations have the power to:
↟ Seamlessly adapt to brand ethos & design
↟ Imagine your communication in a fresh way
↟ Breathe visual life into the stories that matter
