With a background in fine arts and sixteen years working as a graphic designer/art director, I bring to the table an abundance of creativity, skill and drive. My professional background encompasses both agency and corporate environments, including my current position within the in-house department of a large home accents importer. I have created successful advertising campaigns for both retail and wholesale customers. I have helped to position companies at the forefront of their industries through identity development, branding, print advertising, newsletters, catalogs and website design. I work well both independently and as part of a creative team.
I have worked for clients such as: Phillips Petroleum; ConocoPhillips; Blue Cross and Blue Shield; Texas Children’s Hospital; IMAX Worldwide Imports; Tetra, a Division of Pfiser; the Roanoke Times; Project Wild; Quiznos Subs; and Quick Trip Corporation.
In addition to my professional experience, I am a working artist. My artwork has been a part of group and juried exhibitions in Oklahoma, Florida, Virginia and in England. I have worked on a volunteer basis both organizing and installing gallery exhibits, planning PR for gallery events, issuing press releases, writing grants and working with students Pre-K through 12 to promote the arts in our community.
