I am color fanatic! As you can see by my work, I have no limit on color. It is everywhere in my paintings and drawings. Vibrance is key to my creative process unless it is a line drawing or doodle.
I am a graphic designer and artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I have worked in the corporate graphic design industry for over 20 years. I am an expert in corporate and business to business design and strategy. I pride myself on being able to listen to what the client wants and needs and delivering above and beyond their expectations.
I have also created numerous custom art works on canvas, handmade journals, handpainted glassware and many other creative pieces for individuals and large companies. I also worked with infant and toddler licensee clothing lines with Heyman Corporation as the Creative Designer of the Classic Winnie the Pooh line.
Presently, I am with Ascensus, Inc., as the Design Project Manager/Senior Graphic Designer with responsibilities that include managing the design team priorities, project delegation, product strategy, creative review, graphic design, layout, and prepress on corporate identity pieces, catalogs, brochures, artwork for internet and mobile software applications. I’ve also had the opportunity to create original artwork for various product identities.
In 2016, I launched a partnership with Molly Anthony, a fellow artist and we design and produce custom journals. Our website is ArtoriumEmporium.com. We also have an Etsy store and attend numerous art fairs around Minnesota.
As a fine artist, I work in gouache and acrylic paint, and am drawn to vivid color, shape and form. Composition and contrast within my artwork has always been a focal point for me. Subject matter varies, from botanical, everyday surroundings and landscapes to whimsical abstract studies that focus on color and line.
I do take commission work and also do freelance graphic design projects. You can email me at email@example.com or use the contact form on this website.
