I’m an illustrator and educator who specializes in creating work for the tech industry. I help brands establish an emotional connection to their customers, and I make technology products more human by engaging and delighting users.
For the BetterLesson Lab, which is focused on teacher practice, I designed multiple illustrations to enhance the UX of the app. The first two illustrations appear when teachers add something to their portfolio, demonstrating growth. The same characters appear when you hit a bad link (“Something is broken” / 404 page), and when the site is down for maintenance.
BetterLesson: Coach Connect
Spot illustration for an email inviting teachers to connect with their school / district coach on the BetterLesson platform.
At heart, I’m a painter. I make my work by hand, in watercolor, gouache and mixed media. It’s a nourishing practice that is a contrast to my work in tech, which is made digitally.
