Working fine artist for 25+ years.
Graphic design, packaging design, CD/DVD art, business card design, typography, photo manipulation/collage. I work in both traditional and digital media, and a combination of both.

I'm your one-stop woman for your WordPress design and development needs. I'm that uncommon combination of designer AND developer.
Custom themes? Check.
Custom Development? Check.
Cool custom graphics? Check.
Photo editing? Check.
Just need a little WordPress help? Check-aroonie.

Pixel perfect conversion of your existing site from (X)HTML/CSS to WordPress? Well, check that box, too.

Oh, and look no further for your Gravity Forms needs.
Customization to blend seamlessly with your theme, complex form building, or extra columns? Easy.

Expertly crafted custom and responsive WordPress sites using a developer's framework called Builder, by iThemes, the most powerful developer engine on the market.


Service Description
I'm your problem solver, and your satisfaction is always guaranteed. I want things to be perfect just as badly as you do. I'm easy to work with, up-front, and accessible. I am also a working artist, so I can bring an artist's eye to the table for your design needs.

I DON'T USE TEMPLATES FOR CUSTOM SITES - your custom site is guaranteed to be one of a kind! Your custom site is designed WITH you, FOR you.

Of course, if you wish to modify a template, or have purchased a template, I will gladly modify it to your specifications. I have a developer's license for both iThemes, WPMU and Elegant Themes. If you wish to save some money, I suggest using a theme. Because I hold a developer's license, I will be happy to provide you with a ready-made theme of your choice from these vendors at no charge to you. From there, we can customize to suit your needs. I have a deep knowledge of both the Builder (iThemes) and Divi (Elegant Themes) frameworks.

I've just started writing for this publication. I have two articles published and am slated for one more. This is a step-by-step article on carving and painting.

I've written a 256 page how-to book on carving and painting songbirds, called "Carving Award-Winning Songbirds". I did all of the writing, illustrations and photography for this book. I've also collaborated on 4 reference books on birds of prey. I provided painted reference, but also included a written introduction to each specie of raptor. "The Illustrated Bald Eagle" "The Illustrated Owl - Screech and Snowy" "The Illustrated Birds of Prey - Red-Tailed Hawk, American Kestrel and Peregrine Falcon" The Illustrated Owl - Barn, Barred and Great-Horned"

I have written numerous articles for this magazine, all having to do with technical aspects of painting, as well as how-to articles. I also did a major part of the photography, as well as illustrating where required. I am listed in the masthead as "Contributing Editor"
