A bit about me...

I discovered graphic recording when I was taking my DSW diploma. Maps and paths were the lightbulb moment in my life where I knew I had found my purpose. I have always been drawn to being creative and have a tool belt full of scholarly studies in Architectural Technology, Urban Design, Art &Ar chitectural history and Fine Arts.

I hope to grow my network and build a self-sustaining visual recording business doing graphic minute-taking, maps and paths and hand lettering.

I am a single mother of a 15 year old boy turning 25 and two crazy cats. I am doing my Chef apprenticeship and I love to camp, ride my bike, watch movies, read and play with makeup.
