Hi, I'm Charla!
I'm a surface designer and published illustrator with more than a decade of industry experience in print and pattern design. I graduated magna cum laude from the Savannah College of Art and Design, where I studied illustration and earned a B.F.A. and an M.A. in Communication Arts.
I have created art for magazines, product packaging, floor coverings, gift wrap, and greeting cards, as well as children's activities and books. I also have experience in art direction and project management. Repeat patterns are my passion!
When I'm not drawing, I enjoy coffee, cuddling with my cats, making jewelry, traveling, and stargazing in my backyard.
