Hello, my name is Christine Ricks. I’m a designer, developer, and artist based in northern California.

I’ve built a fashion discovery platform, worked for Adobe, done my own bootstrapped startup, and drawn something that went to space. See my work, read my résumé, or find out more about me.

My life started in Phoenix, Arizona, but I’ve called the San Francisco Bay Area home for over a decade. My partner, Steven, and I moved out of San Francisco to Sonoma County in 2016 in pursuit of space to grow food and raise animals.

After spending a few years along the Russian River, today we are in the process of creating a four acre permaculture farm on Coast Miwok/Southern Pomo lands near the Laguna de Santa Rosa. We have two extremely affectionate cats and five rambunctious hens.

When I’m not designing for Adobe, I read, paint, take photos, care for our chickens, snuggle with our cats, try to grow things, and hoard animated GIFs.

A lot of people probably arrive on this site because I drew the Dogecoin logo. I do not currently hold any Dogecoin or participate in the cryptocurrency space. I do not recommend contacting me about Dogecoin.

I’m serious about the gif hoarding.
