My Name is
Graphic and Visual Designer
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. As a very young woman, I successfully participated in art shows, won many awards and received a fine art scholarship. This early experience taught me layout and composition which provided an excellent foundation for graphic design.
I graduated from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale where in addition to design and layout, I learned the principles of color theory as well as the preparation of files for production and printing. I later received a Bachelors’ Degree from Indian River State College in Digital Media/Graphic Design.
Perhaps as a result of growing up in a military family, the reputation and quality of my work is extremely important to me. Completing projects in a timely manner without any compromise to quality is an ideal that I am committed to. My ability to prioritize projects and work under tight deadlines is something I take great pride in.
Early in my career, when the newspaper industry was thriving, I learned how to multi-task and work in a high volume, deadline driven environment while also paying careful attention to detail.
I have a wide variety of work experience in many different industries, as an in-house designer and art director, a remote designer or through my own graphic design firm.
My work over the length of my career has covered a broad range of media from logo design, digital/social media, infographics, annual reports, billboards, vehicle wraps, product labels, menus, and more.
I take into consideration the unique needs and styles of each organization or client from the more conservative professional nature of healthcare or finance to the trendiness of a clothing retailer or major tourist destination. My work has earned numerous prestigious design awards, including several, highly-coveted Addy awards, the advertising community’s version of the Emmy awards.
Outside of work I enjoy training and scent tracking with my Belgian Malinois. I continue to enjoy drawing and art as well as hiking, gardening, reading and cooking.
