Hi! I am a graphic designer with more than 15 years of experience and a life long love of illustration. I graduated with my B.F.A. from Colorado State University in 2005. I have worked in a variety of graphic design environments constantly honing my skills as a graphic designer, illustrator and artist. My professional titles have ranged from Print Shop Manager to Director of Graphics.
I enjoy designing and illustrating for a wide range of purposes including for print, web, advertising, marketing, or logo/brand design. I've also created repeat patterns, packaging, gifts bags and stationery items. I have worked with businesses of all types including start-ups, established brands, non-profits and entrepreneurs from all over the country. I have expert skills in software such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop and WordPress.
In this field, I have learned how critical it is to be self-motivated, organized and flexible. Good communication is vital with clients, printers and advertisers. While I have managed and trained a team of employees and volunteers, I have also worked many years as a freelancer. Every project has sharpened my ability to work alone and within a team to succeed. Some of my favorite designs were for more personal pieces including wedding packages, graduation announcements, and painting commissions. My not so secret passion is handmade items that include journals and screen-printed invitations. I have a natural eye for design and the professional skills to carry out your vision from concept to finished artwork, whether it be for print or web.
Currently, my most prized title is “Mommy”. I love to craft and create anything, especially with my 2 kiddos! You can find me making organized chaos around my house as I sew, paint, draw, screen print, book bind and anything else that involves the right side of my brain.
