Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $45

Visual art is communication. Translating abstract concepts into powerful and effective visual images is what I do best and enjoy the most. In order to meet the needs of my clients, I infuse my graphics work with the necessary elements of clarity, balance, energy, harmony and dynamic movement.

Working with a client is about communication as well, and to support the requirements of the project at hand, I listen to and make sure that I understand completely and thoroughly my client's point of view. Clarity in concept, coupled with skill and...

Service Description

I began my graphics career in NYC as assistant art director for a financial management firm. I moved to San Francisco to work as a designer and production artist for a motion picture company. Later, as art director for a Silicon Valley computer firm, and head of the department, I initiated and implemented the transition from traditional graphic design and typesetting, to a computer-based system, greatly increasing production and saving the company a lot of time and money.

Whether you are looking for an illustration, logo, photo-manipulation, postcard, or other collateral material, I can give you what you need in the style that you want and the format that you require: JPEG, TIFF, EPS, PDF, PNG, hard copy or digital— you name it, I'll see that you get it in a timely manner.


I've been developing my skills with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop since version 1.0. I've used Illustrator for everything from technical illustration, to brochure design, to fine art prints. I particularly enjoy using Illustrator in tandem with Photoshop, and Photoshop effects to manipulate illustrations and photographs.

To get the most out of these programs, I specialize in the creation unique brushes and patterns to enhance my designs, and work with complex layering and transparency techniques.

I presently work from my studio in Felton, CA.
