    I believe personality and purpose are the core of any great conversation - even more so for the ones we have visually. I am an accomplished visual designer with a focus on graphic layouts, illustration, and accompanying motion graphics. My experience ranges from practical work in apparel decorating, to bold music industry visuals, to poignant and modern tech promotion. I've been lucky enough to develop a refined set of skills in regard to layout, flexible design, and the creation of striking visuals. I create purpose-driven graphics that communicate clearly, without sacrificing style. I specialize in print-inspired, texture-heavy designs, but can nimbly navigate a variety of aesthetics with ease. From retro-inspired to modern, grungy to pristine, and print to digital - I craft visual experiences to make your voice stand out, with the knowledge and expertise to efficiently translate it to a variety of mediums. Let's spark a passionate conversation - visually.

    I am a digital artist living in Pittsburgh, PA. As a teenager, I worked with the group Tim Rollins + K.O.S. to create a painting for the 1991 Carnegie International Art Exhibition. I attended the Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Arts and Syracuse University College of Visual and Performing Arts. Then, it was off to New York City for the next two decades. During that time, I worked with architects and interior designers to renovate high-end Tribeca lofts. I created art during this time and was one of the first artists to be signed by Mixed Greens. But I decided to have kids and stop making art for a while. I was a stay-at-home mom and built a popular food blog called Resolution Eats. But now the kids are grown, and it's back to digital design. It's time to put my 27 years of Photoshop experience to good use. So if you are looking for a graphic design, a photograph alteration or a digital illustration, I can help.

    I have years of experience in pen and ink illustration, with optional watercolor and digital finishing. This is high-quality traditional artwork suitable for a wide variety of projects. I can work from imagination and my own sources, or directly from your sketch or photo. I provide web- or print-ready files for whatever kind of project you have in mind, and by special arrangement I may be able to send you original art on paper. Clear communication and shared expectations are also important to me, so I'll bid a number of hours on your project that will allow for a level of work similar to that in my portfolio, and I'll keep you posted about how your job is progressing. In most cases I will show pencil sketches for review before finalizing. My past projects include magazine, book, greeting card and oracle card illustration, one-of-a-kind gifts, coloring pages and graphics for t-shirts, jewelry, logos, tattoo designs and textile patterns. I like natural and magical themes, but I'll draw anything you want!
