I’ve been drawing and making things as long as I can remember. I was voted ‘Most Artistic’ my senior year of high school, friends referred to me as ‘crafty’ and every notebook I had was covered in sketches. I pursued my artistic passions in college, and graduated with my BA in Graphic Design for the University Of Delaware.
I’ve spent over ten years working with design firms crafting brand identities, and printed promotions, but my heart wasn’t satisfied. With a little push from my then fiancé, I launched The Chatty Press on Etsy in 2011 with five address stamp designs. I wasn’t sure if anyone would notice, but they did and they still do! I love creating non-traditional wedding invitations so that couples can truly show off their unique style rather than flip through a book. That makes my heart happy!
When I’m not fawning over paper swatches or sketching a new design, you can probably find me curled up with my husband Matt and our corgi Einstein binge watching something on netflix* or exploring New England in search of new adventures (and donuts).
Designer, Owner, Lover of Paper!
