Whimsical Watercolor Wedding Details at Florence Griswold Museum // Old Lyme, CT


The flowers in her hair, the dreamy summer palette, the bow ties and the perfect touch of polka dots has me thinking this wedding is something out of a fairy tale. This favorite (of mine) Connecticut wedding location, Florence Griswold Museum was the perfect backdrop to this whimsical wedding that I had the honor of creating stationery for. Enjoy a peek into their wedding and all the sweet details <3

So honored to have been a part of your day Katy + Jerimiah! Wishing you endless days of love Xx

Farm Vibes


Hi there! I am working on a branding project for an organization that is working to preserve historic farmland. So many things to be inspired by: nature, animals, textures, vintage farm/fair posters, packaging, vintage, lino cuts, block printing–and so much more…

Here is the final mood board I created, and some more farm vibe eye candy.

Recent work // Mosaic Inc. Rebrand


Whoa! I can’t believe I have not shared anything with you guys here since April! As always lots of old and new projects to share, and fall and winter time always seems to be the best time for me to “catch up” on my portfolio and documenting work and life. So hopefully more frequent posts coming your way!

So excited to share the newly launched brand for Mosaic. Mosaic provides sophisticated rental linens and fabric decor for special events throughout the world. To celebrate their 15 years of business a new look was in order that was both classic and current.

It was important in the re-brand to stay true to their values and design aesthetic. A few things played a significant role in the development of the new look were the use of a quatrefoil motif, and maintaining a reference to their signature colors while softening and neutralizing their previous palette.

Mosaic, said it perfectly the explanation of what inspired the new mark below:

“Combining clean & classic with fanciful & decorative elements, we wanted to update our logo, ultimately creating a cohesive design which captures the look and feel of our brand. In choosing a modified quatrefoil motif as our accent, it was our intention to define our brand with a shape that is founded in strong symbolic roots but is viewed as current and relevant to today’s world as well.  This symbol has been seen throughout the ages in a variety of applications. In some cultures, it has symbolized good luck and harmony. In others, it represents the synergy of the four ends of the world. The four lobes combine geometry and symmetry, and its Latin roots are derived from “four leaves”. Our interpretation playfully merges classic elements and modern decorative detail, paralleling our business desires to encompass a variety of styles in new and original ways.”

We are all so happy with the outcome! Be sure to check out their website that was updated with all of the new elements that we created for the brand.

Congrats Mosaic, Inc! Cheers to many more successful years in the event industry.


As always, love to hear feedback in the comments!


Design Process



In need of a major design break so decided to jump on and share the moodboard for the branding project I am currently working on.

Isn’t it joyful? YES! Cheery + upbeat is definitely what we are going for! This moodboard is for an artist and teacher who is interested in cultivating a culture of joy, compassion and love that will have a ripple effect onto others and make the world a better place. We are working on building a brand for her that is recognizable and professional.

I was just working on digitizing some sketches. I am playing around with organic circles and natural elements which she wanted to possibly incorporate. Having a lot of fun and can’t wait to share some of the progress. If you follow along on snapchat: saltmystic you may have seen some sneak peeks at some sketches.





hi there! I am looking to hire a creative assistant who is interested in working in a small and growing creative business! The shop/studio is located in Mystic, CT and I would love the new member of the team to be on location 2-3 days and up to 20 hours a week. Hours and days are flexible week to week.
