I grew up between an island in SE Alaska and an island in the Pacific NW of Washington. Two very amazing places that have given me a never ending supply of inspiration and appreciation.
Currently I live on San Juan Island in Friday Harbor, Washington with my 2 teenage boys and our lovebird parrot.
I have been working in the field of graphic design for about 17 years. Beginning my career as a Marketing Artist for Pilot Publishing, Inc in Petersburg, Alaska. Moving on from there to work for Sound Publishing in Friday Harbor as a Marketing Artist for the Journal of the San Juan Islands.
Taking another leap in my career, I accepted a job offer with Skagit Valley Publishing, Inc. as their lead marketing artist for The Skagit Valley Herald. I stayed with the Skagit Valley Herald for 3 years, designing special publications, weekly guides, daily advertisements, online marketing materials and much more.
I want more than ever to present my love of good design to others in hopes to help people showcase their business... showcase their talents... showcase their lives. Whatever it may be, I can definitely help bring it all together and get it out to people who need to know it.
And I always do so with a smile!
