My bachelor's degree in art exposed me to three semesters of drawing in several mediums: charcoal, chalk, and pencil. While working on my master's in graphic design, I gravitated towards bookmaking with my electives and worked mainly in pencil, charcoal and watercolor.
As a graphic designer, it's fun to include my own illustration in my designs. I've used pencil, watercolor, and pastels in client work. With my degree in art and experience as a graphic designer, I am able to offer the following services:
illustration in pencil, charcoal, watercolor, pastels or digital
book design and layout including artwork ready for printing or ibook publication
hand-drawn, customized fonts
"Six Lives" is a collection of one family's true cat stories. The final book was distributed in print, video and ibook form. A website, postcard, poster, and interactive website were also produced.
illustration, design and branding created for the website, designforsight.com.
While teaching at University of Wisconsin, Whitewater, I created Garli to demonstrate the process of character development to the students.
These books were created with handmade paper and printed with a Vandercook Proof Press.
