Overview

Hello! My name is Christy. I am a long-time lover of art, design, and photography. I have a BA in Graphic Design and have been utilizing those skills since 2004. I have had the pleasure of working individually with clients both large and small on a variety of projects from print to web.
In 2008, I graduated from the MFA Photography program at Cranbrook Academy of Art, so I also have skills as an artist/photographer.
