Who Am I?

I’ve been a graphic artist and web designer for over 20 years. I started my career as a designer when I was 19 working for my mom who owned a Karaoke Newspaper in Seattle, WA. While there, I started designing ads and learning the tricks and skills of the trade. Every job after seemed to guide me down the same path of Graphic Design and eventually Web Design.

In 2006 I completed my Graphic Design degree from the The Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online Branch.

I have been a freelance designer for the past 14 years. Being on my own gave me the ability to be home for my children and still work. I have worked for a wide variety of clients and companies all over the country and love every one of them.

I take great pride in the work I do. I strive to give my clients exactly what they are looking for from:

  • Logo design
  • brochures
  • posters
  • business cards
  • banners, magazines
  • marketing ads
  • and much more

Take a look at my portfolio, and give me a call. I’m happy to sit down with you and go over your business design needs.
