Art & Design

Hi! I’m a multidisciplinary visual artist and designer with more than 20 years. As a print and graphic designer, I make logos, flyers, brochures, t-shirts, and other printed materials. I especially love making promotional materials like movie posters and theater posters. I also design and build awesome, easy-to-use websites for artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and forward-thinking companies.

As a visual artist and illustrator, I have been trained in a wide variety of mediums including pencil, marker, pastel, and paint. I also enjoy working with my hands using tactile things like fabric and found objects. I also enjoy making jewelry from trash and handmade dolls and pillows that represent people.
