I design effective visual collateral for print and web that promotes and illustrates the products and vision of my clients. I enjoy the flexibility of freelancing and the challenge of jumping into a project. My clients are comprised of design firms and in-house design departments, consulting firms and small businesses in a wide range of industries. Many clients see me as their go-to gal when they need an extra set of hands to meet a deadline. With 35 years working as a designer and production artist, (and a few years before that working as a typesetter), I have the experience to meet the creative and technical needs of my clients. I am an expert user of Adobe Creative Suite. I work smart, efficient and I’m fast. Simply put—I love what I do. From the creative to the technical, I love it all. I work with customers nationally from the East coast.
