I grew up in Atlanta, GA and am now based in Brooklyn, NY. I have a degree in Textile Design from Georgia State University and I continue to work with patterns, illustration, and teaching textile classes.

I have worked with The Sketchbook Project since it began in 2006. From touring internationally, to Co-Curating the first Sketchbook Project book, and opening Brooklyn Art Library -- it has been a labor of love for me and my husband, Steven Peterman.
