Totaling 17 years of experience in graphic design and production, product packaging and illustration, I have been successfully freelancing for marketing firms, creative groups and private companies for the past 11 years. Before going into business for myself, I was a Graphic Artist for Russell Stover Candies and a Graphic Artist for Mercantile Corporation/Macy's. I am responsible for all the design, layout, coordination, photo direction, photography and production on my projects, or just phases of a project, depending on my client's needs. I have a BS in Mathematics from the University of Oklahoma and 2 1/2 years of design education from the Kansas City Art Institute.
I provide a full range of graphic design services for businesses and individuals which includes:
Brochures & Flyers
Illustration/Web Illustration & Components
Posters, Billboards & Banners
My graphic design experience ranges from large corporations to small businesses. I work closely with my clients to develop their visions into the end products they need to convey their message as well as increase profits.

The Jones Store/Mercantile Corporation
1995 - 1996
As a designer in the marketing department for two retail department store chains, The Jones Store Co. and Joslins, I designed B/W and 4 color retail ads for newspapers and magazines, in-store marketing materials (event announcements, coupons, hosiery cards, etc...), their corporate newsletter and direct mail pieces. I directed fashion and product photo shoots and was responsible for the design and production of all my projects. I digitally manipulated photos in Photoshop using curves, filters and photo tools to improve output quality, COB’d photos and cloned backgrounds. This was a high volume, fast paced, deadline oriented environment.

I designed 4 color flyers and brochures for the sales and marketing staff, 4 color box labels, stickers, candy bar wrappers, display cartons and corrugated floor shippers. Work on projects consisted of initial concept, design and illustration, lay-out, production, creation of product/project mock-ups and product photo direction.
