An Artist to the core!

Painting. Drawing. Designing. Carpentry. Quilting. Creating with my hands and always on the prowl for the never-done-before. In another life, I would be an inventor, but this one will do for now.  

The Graphic Designer

Nurturing a "kind of" idea into a "that's it!" vision drives what I do. Creating something from nothing...pulling the "feel" of what my clients are trying to communicate from their brains then turning it into a real, tactical product is the thrill of the challenge. From initial brainstorming to the launched product, let me bring your vision to life! Together, let's develop a future for your company that flawlessly transitions with changing trends and exceeds user demands.  

The Artist

With a BFA in Studio Art and 15 years of obsession under my belt, creating works of art is better than breathing. I'm always drawing...like always. Waiting for a page to load...doodling. Downtime is drawing. I'm constantly developing new canvases for painting...wood, burlap, glass. It's all about texture. Portraiture?!? No problem! I'm extremely meticulous, so I enjoy nonrepresentational art, but my brain doesn't go there. My true love is in design art. Creating designs and patterns...love it! Sewing is my meditation. I make cozy quilts from sweatshirt fabric. A new pattern is only an idea away. I rebuilt my kitchen cabinets. No closet is safe from an efficient organization system built in my garage. From a table saw to a sewing machine to oil paint and brush, creating is it for me.

The Rest

Thanks for reading! Hope to hear from you SOON!
