My name is Shelby, and my pronouns are they/them. I’m a designer, illustrator and all-around color enthusiast, currently located in sunny Arizona. Across the many fields and varied disciplines I'm experienced in, my work is consistently described as vibrant, colorful and intentional. Research and experimentation is an important part of my process. I also using storytelling and narrative devices to spark connections and interest with my client's audiences. I love contributing to projects that spread joy and have an impact on local communities. Bonus points if there's humor involved.
I am passionate about spreading knowledge and creativity throughout my community and look for any opportunities to engage with young designers and emerging creatives.
In addition to collaborating with brands and organizations, I create independent comics and zines that feature LGBTQ+ characters and themes. Check them out here!
