Hey

Thanks for stopping by! I’m a graphic designer and illustrator originally from Monterrey, Mexico and now living in Milton, On, Canada. I’m a mom of identical twin boys and a lover of all things handmade.

Milo&Ben is a brand centered around my illustrated characters. While some are strictly needle felted, some are sewn and stuff all hand. My work has been featured in Mollie Makes, Crafts Beautiful, Today’s Parent, Weddingbells; as well as other print and online publications.

I’m also the founder of Makeology. Founded in 2013, Makeology started as an online group aiming to bring together likeminded makers of things. It has grown into a community rich with amazingly talented artists who support and look out for one another. For more information about the community and craft fairs go here.
