Thanks for stopping by!
Having worked for several years as a freelance graphic designer/illustrator, I feel lucky to be able to pursue art both as a career and for personal enrichment. It is my constant joy and challenge, and I would have it no other way.
Working as a freelancer has given me the opportunity to hone my skills in a variety of specialties ranging from traditional print design to web/digital related design. I am by volume mostly a print designer. That said, the web has opened up a vast world of opportunity for visual work, and while I no longer claim to be a highly proficient "web designer" (as that has become a skilled profession unto itself), I enjoy being involved in the cutting edge digital world. I do a great deal of web-related work in the form of social media assets and screen-friendly imaging.
In addition to my professional design work I am an illustrator; and, more recently, a pet portrait artist. For enjoyment and commission I create animal portraits—caricatures, of sorts—and I love to try to capture both the features and personality of the animal.
I am also a mother of teenage twins; am blessed with a very patient husband; and I share my home with the world's most-friendly golden retriever (and an assortment of other creatures). When I'm not making art or carting my kids around I find inspiration on local hiking trails, mountain biking, reading, and daydreaming. I find endless ways to keep my life rich and busy, and I am thrilled to be a part of it all.
Reach out and say hello! I look forward to chatting with you, answering any art related questions, or talking about a commission or other project.
