About Me

Creating has always come naturally to me; in fact, there isn’t a time in my life I can remember when I was not coloring, drawing, collaging, or painting. With a mother and grandmother who are both artists too, my childhood home was always filled with color, and my creative talents were encouraged and nurtured.

I developed a visual problem solving strategy pretty early on. Being a soft-spoken and introverted kid, I often used drawing pictures for classmates as a way to make friends. My first experience with digital art was at age 12, with a Super Nintendo game called Mario Paint. After getting a computer for my 15th birthday, I taught myself how to code HTML and manipulate images. To say that the internet changed my life is not an understatement; from the moment I was able to get a copy of Photoshop, I knew that graphic design was what I wanted to do when I grew up. 

I’ve spent the majority of my professional career as an in-house designer, working in the fields of marketing/advertising, publishing, commercial printing, and retail product development. Since I have experience in both the conceptualization and layout stages as well as in the technical and mechanical execution of print production, I can confidently manage the complete design process from start to finish. As a multi-disciplined fine artist, my critical eye for detail has also become a valuable asset in my career. 

Throughout the 15+ years I’ve been employed as a graphic artist, I’ve found amazing satisfaction in helping people develop communication solutions that are both elegant and effective. One of the most consistent pieces of feedback I receive is praise for my ability to take a client’s vision and turn it into something better than they could have imagined.

I put my heart and soul into everything I do and would love to be a part of your team. Let’s get in touch!
