My earliest memories of art include the big box of 64 Crayola Crayons and three or four coloring books. Big pads of craft paper to draw my wildest thoughts, and a stack of “How to Draw” anything books. These things kept me entertained for hours. As I got older, art class was more than an elective; it was my favorite class–what I looked forward to every day.

Creativity also runs in my family: painters, sculptors, illustrators, writers, and graphic designers. So many creative minds inspiring me. And I look at my surroundings and find design and beauty even in the simplest things. Though I tried other more “practical” paths in college, my love for art wouldn’t let go, and so I followed my passion and changed my plan of study, completing a BFA in graphic design. Today, art–my love for it and my career–make my life full.

After college, and for the last 35 years, I’ve worked for various companies, meeting other creatives along the way and learning from them as I honed my skills. I have worked for and collaborated with great clients, whom I keep in touch with because I see them as my work family, not just clients.

I have a strong work ethic, completing projects efficiently and meticulously, and honoring job timelines and budgets. In my spare time, I love to be with family and friends, watching college sports, cooking meals to fill our table, and escaping to the mountains or the high desert of New Mexico.
