I am a graphic designer who specializes in Catalogs, Newsletters, Print Collateral, WordPress Website Development and Management, Email Blasts and Photoshop Image Manipulation. I am known for my creativity, organization and detail. I graduated with a BA in Visual Design from UMass Dartmouth in 1987 and have been in the graphics industry ever since. I worked for fifteen years in the printing industry in prepress and then moved on to an advertising agency as a production artist in Providence, RI. I also have run my own freelance business for over ten years, serving clients in the antiques, yacht racing, healthcare and the food and retail industries. With an abundance of experience in layout and design, I create ads, posters, brochures, flyers, catalogs, books, magazines, web banners, PowerPoint presentations, direct mails, postcards, t-shirts and more. I am very proficient in the Adobe Suite of programs, including InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. In the last few years, I have gotten involved with website creation and maintenance and online marketing. I have experience with several website content management systems, WordPress websites, online surveys and E-newsletters. My interests include art, photography, music and nature. Recently, I fulfilled a life-long dream of traveling to Egypt and hope to continue to travel the world. I live with my two sons who keep me very busy.
