Illustrated White Cats

Design nerd & young blood


If you have any appreciation for design & live somewhat locally, I'm the gal for you! I live, breath & dream design and it reflects on all things I do. My standards are high and I like it that way and so should you. Keeping a styled space around you keeps your brain healthy, while expressing your interests in a unique way. 


I have a love and appreciation for well designed furniture as well as a vision to customize pieces in need of reupholstery by using unique and beautiful, fresh & often unexpected textiles. Being a little quirky, modern & unique; I push the limits of your imagination.  At Phoenix Home Studio, I believe, with a little hard work, any thing can look new again! 


Along with furniture, design schooling has taught myself the ins - and - outs of graphic design. I love designing for businesses, events and weddings. These little projects seem simple, but the preciseness and editing that is needed to print something aesthetically pleasing is such a reward in the end. 

I  recently have started working at the local floral shop in town to dabble in designing flower arrangements. It's one of the most rewarding jobs I've ever had. Bloom Floral allows me to express myself through a new and beautiful medium, flowers! Having an Interior Design degree from Iowa State University has assisted in this huge undertaking and in the long run with bolster my creativity and my design mind. 


Please contact me for any and all Design projects that need a little professional touch. I am super excited to start fresh and am looking forward to what is to come!
