Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $15

I am a stay-at-home Mom with 24 years of Graphic Design experience. I work comfortably in both print and web environments, specializing in Publishing and Marketing & Promotions. I love color and type and never imagined I'd do anything as rewarding as meeting an impossible deadline and still making my client say "Wow, I love it!" Then I had my son. Now I balance my passions for design and family with freelance work.
