Graphic Design | Fine Art | Multimedia
As a child, I drew pictures on walls, rocks, furniture, plants, and even paper. I made my own Barbie house when I was about 6 and was designing my own clothes at 12. I was born in London and moved a lot while growing up, with most of my childhood spent in Puerto Rico, which I still think of as home. Two years ago, my husband and I relocated with our three cats to Phoenix, Arizona, where, after living near the beaches of South Florida and in the mountains of Western North Carolina, we now are taking in the beauty of the Sonoran Desert.
After completing an Associate’s degree in Advertising Design from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, I gained great experience working in advertising agencies and design firms, and have worn a lot of hats, from graphic designer to marketing coordinator to art director.
From my experience and education, I’ve learned that the best creative results come from sound research and strategic planning. As I am a detail-oriented artist, I enjoy producing as much as designing. I work well independently and with teams, vendors, and clients. I seek proactive solutions and have a good sense of humor.
I love doing design and creating everything from websites to logos/identity programs to corporate and promotional print materials to package designs & mock-ups to custom trade show materials & in-store displays to complex image retouching to mixed media illustrations. Because I have been a technologist since the early days of the net, I have stayed informed about trends and continue to adapt to meet my clients’ digital and print needs.
