Most of these drawings were created in my spare time for funsies. Others were client requests. I mostly draw using Adobe Animate. I plan to expand my abilities with iPad Procreate and Clip Studio Paint Pro.

ILLUSTRATIONS

Some of these logo designs were client requests such as for local school and businesses. Others were submissions to win bids. Some are also, of course, for funsies. I also use Adobe Animate to create my logo designs.

LOGO DESIGN

My bachelor's degree is in photography. I discovered my love for it and made the switch while working on the completion of my required graphic design courses.

I am a big fan of landscape photography as well as candid portraiture. When it can be in black and white...even better.

I hoping traditional print art doesn't get lost in the shuffle. Some of my favorite college courses were in printmaking. I enjoy crafting a personal card or invitation here and there, as well as making book covers and promotional signs. I also like the challenge of composition space and typography.

PRINT DESIGN

These all are actual sample of various graphics I've created over the years that have been used by clients and companies that I have worked for. The assets include iconography, graphs, interfaces, and infographics. Over the years, I've used Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Flash.

WORK ASSETS

Iconography

What a lucky opportunity I stumbled into awhile back. What was supposed to be a one book contract job has evolved into a seven year ongoing contract with thirteen books illustrated as well as reproducible graphics and illustrations for young children's classroom materials.

I really enjoy making 2D animations. There is a lot that can be done with Adobe Animate (formerly Adobe Flash), software that I have been using since 1999. By studying traditional animation methods as well as furthering my skills digitally, I truly look forward to making many more quick animations when requested to do so.

ANIMATIONS

My favorite day of the year is Halloween and I've looked forward to carving my yearly pumpkin(s) ever since I was little. I keep my pumpkins relatively simple akin to how I prefer to draw in 2D rather than 3D. I started getting into cakes once I had kids. I wanted to make something special myself rather than get store bought cake. Unfortunately, they've grown up quickly and no longer require special birthday magic.
