We love hiking, climbing & exploring
(at a toddler pace)
HOW IT ALL STARTED
I grew up hiking in the White Mountains, not only peak-bagging but discovering the less traveled trails. When I returned home after completing my thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2013, I had a vision for an art print that not only looked beautiful on the wall but helped me discover new trails. As a constant list maker, I also wanted this map to include the trails I had already hiked. After many sketches, the "Color In Hiking Trail Map" was completed.
I put everything on hold for 6 months while my husband and I hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 2016. When I got home, inspiration to merge art and outdoor activity together was overflowing and Sherpa Ant was created.
OWNER, DESIGNER & ILLUSTRATOR
Whenever possible you will find me outdoors and exploring the mountains. Making products that help others pursue and celebrate the outdoors combines my love of art and nature.
I live, draw and play in Massachusetts with my husband, Erich, and daughters, Sierra and Ada. I love backpacking and rock climbing and am always ready to talk trail.
I have been hiking throughout the US and have explored in Ireland, the Azores, Patagonia and Buenos Aires. My dream trips are Alaska, Banff and the Wind River Range.
