I have over 20 years of experience in graphic design and art direction. In addition to a long history with print media — newspaper, magazine, catalogs, promotional brochures and flyers — I have developed a love for illustration and branding work. I enjoy the unique challenge of logo and identity creation.

I came to graphic design through family tradition (daughter of a fine artist) and through publishing, which meant I began my career working with type and page layout. As the needs of my employers changed, I grew with their businesses, learning new software and file structures as the need arose.

I've worked for book and magazine publishers (ad production, ad schedule management, copy editing, proofreading, page layout, cover design, and even trade shows), for a home decor manufacturer (signage, point-of-purchase displays, packaging, photo shoot direction), for a home builder in a major metropolitan area (collateral, signage, billboards, and lots of print ads), for a small design studio that did a little of everything, but specialized in branding and package design, and now as a freelance and contract artist I work for myself.

I've learned from every project I've ever participated in, from every drawing, from every client interaction. Without the learning, it just wouldn't be any fun. While I consider myself ready to learn new skill sets, and big ones, at a moment's notice, I do not represent myself as a web designer. I do not do coding or programming, but I can supply words and images for any project, including online endeavors. I do have a fair amount of experience creating web graphics as well as designing the overall look of sites.

Finally, my master's in English Literature and broad-based education, experience and interests mean that I add value to every client collaboration, always striving to deliver more than required. That's just how I work. Read Less
