You + me = the best art, ever.

Custom artwork for color-loving dreamers.

As a professional brand and product photographer, I obviously know the importance of great photos. But I also know that photos aren't where the visual story has to end. Illustrations add a whimsical touch to your website, print collateral, or packaging.

Think custom illustrations are just for big brands with big budgets? Think again!

Artwork is engaging to the viewer and 'stops the scroll'

It pairs well with photography to tell a complete story

Illustrations are limited only by an artist's imagination

It's a creative way to communicate

Why you need more illustration in your life:

Digital elements + maps for your website

Stickers for clients or giveaways

Notecards with a personal touch

Custom t-shirts

Product packaging or labeling




Custom illustrations start at just $185, making it an affordable way to make your brand unique and magical.

Luckily, custom illustration is more attainable than you might think. 

I've got the magic your brand has been begging for – sparkles included.

After working with another graphic designer and not having the greatest experience, we were a little apprehensive about jumping into another project with someone this early on. Right from the start, we can say that you were very clear about your process and were incredibly professional; communication was so good and you very quickly answered any/all questions and explained things to me when I was a little stuck in the mud if you will. As far as the finished product, everything came out great. It far exceeded our expectations which is impressive given we had a bit of a short suspense. Thank you again for all of your hard work!

 I worked with a local Brewery to create a beer with my video production company, so we needed a killer label that captured filmmaking, beer, and a nice springtime aesthetic that goes along with the flavors in the beer. She took that pile of random information and spat out some of the coolest can label art I've ever seen! This beer can will sit on my office table (that table you keep all your prized possessions and awards on) forever!  

"Choosing to work with you was an easy decision."

Logo design

"Alicia did an amazing job bringing my rough logo sketch to life! It’s epically beautiful and perfectly captures the spirit of our business. Alicia clearly explained the process of the logo development, payment, and receipt. She worked efficiently. Responding to changes and additions to the design quickly. I’ve used Alicia for a couple of projects and she is a joy to work with. If you need a professional logo let her talented hands tackle that project!"

"When I sent some design ideas to Alicia, I had no idea this is what she would come up with. Absolutely MAGICAL! This map really brings our entire website together, plus it's fun to use! Once again, this gal has outdone herself and I can't recommend her enough!

"Absolutely MAGICAL!"

Wait! Before you take off, why not...

ok, I'm intrigued. tell me more!

Any given piece may draw inspiration from my favorite subjects: A floral line drawing might surround a quote from a 1960s song that I love. A Christmas lettering piece may have colors inspired by sunny California.

I tend to favor a mix of pastel and bright colors reminiscent of southern California and the 1960s, wildflowers that might have been found in a hippie's flower crown, and lettering that feels a touch whimsical.

That said, I also love to mix it up. I never know when something totally unrelated to my favorite styles will inspire me to create something new and fresh.

My core belief?
Life is too short to be boring. Make it fun + bring on the color.

Wildflowers. California Sunsets. The 1960s.

Hey , I'm Alicia.
