Riley started her freelance design and illustration company in the summer of 2014, after a good friend asked if she'd be interested in designing a custom watercolor invitation suite for her upcoming wedding. In June 2017, Riley left her elementary school teaching career to pursue freelance art full-time.

Riley specializes in watercolor illustration, but also loves finding new surfaces to paint on (seashells, ribbon, and picnic baskets, to name a few) with acrylics. Her style is whimsical and feminine, and she is most inspired by interior design, fashion, and architecture- but she's always open to new opportunities to create things that make people smile. She lives and works in Falls Church, Virginia with her husband and their dog, Stevie. To view current artwork listings, please visit her online shop.
