Overview

I am a Brooklyn-based freelance illustrator and designer with experience in working with clients both large and small on projects ranging from commissioned fine art to logo and branding work and everything in between.

I am comfortable working in a number of styles and mediums, and enjoy bridging traditional media (pen and ink, watercolor, acrylic and pastel) with digital. I am adept at Adobe Creative Suite.

I am also a proficient writer, with a background in content writing, blogging, grant writing, and editing.

Service Description

I consider myself a jack-of-all trades in the realms of illustration, fine arts, and graphic design. As a freelancer in New York, I've done projects across a wide spectrum of styles and mediums for both large businesses and private clients.

My most recent commissions include a large-scale painting for a Manhattan-based architectural firm, the design of the spring brochure for a non-profit organization, a logo design for an independent book seller, the creation of the opening credits and posters of a comedy short, and the illustration of a web comic for a florida-based writer. Beyond this, I've done product design, character design, political cartoons, photo retouching, commissioned portraits, mural work, graphic design for apparel, and more.

As an illustrator first and foremost I bring to the table a creative eye for any project and an eagerness to execute on the most professional level. I also operate under the strictest of professionalism, in that good communication is of the utmost importance; your emails will not languish in my inbox.

I also have background in writing, having worked for years for a non-profit organization as a grant and content writer. I've blogged for newspapers, start-up companies, and independently.
