Assess the communications, branding, marketing and advertising needs of a wide range of clients. Develop fresh, innovative approaches to meeting these needs for my clients. I offer multiple solutions to the creative challenges my clients face and work closely with them to refine the best concepts into winning efforts.

An experienced freelance designer, illustrator and fine artist, I am also a skilled project manager adept at taking an idea and systematically turning it into a turnkey client solution. I have a thorough knowledge of the creative process, project management and technical aspects of all types of project execution and production.

I work with clientele to determine project management issues such as developing new or using existing artwork, budgetary and timeline requirements, implementing and finalizing the production and distribution of the final product.

Create artwork for a broad clientele ranging from children’s book illustrations, large-scaled murals and hand-painted novelty gift items for the St. Louis Muny to designing print collateral for various companies such as Nokia and Heineken and St. Louis Homes & Lifestyle Magazine. Read Less
