Minimum Hourly Rate $20

I have been drawing since I was a child, but received my formal training from Western Kentucky University, where I attained a BFA in Graphic Design. Since then I have gone on to work professionally as an illustrator and designer for 8+ years. I bring my years of experience and passion for art to every project that I work on.

I have a love of art and design, and a drive to use that love to create designs that anyone would be proud to display. I want every client that hires me to walk away with a design that goes beyond just fitting their...

Service Description

I am available for work on design and illustration projects alike. Below are a few examples of my approach to different projects.

- Logos - A custom logo can really set your business apart. I can create a logo that does more than just tell the audience the name of your company. I can create something that speaks to what your company does, and the message you want to send your customers.

- Children's Books - A well thought out illustration can really draw a child into a story. I strive with every illustration I create to not only tell a story, but to make an image that is going to stick with a child. I want to make sure that the book that child is looking at is something that sticks with them. Each illustration is a memory waiting to happen, and each book, something that can be cherished for a lifetime.

- T-Shirt Design - I have worked specifically in the t-shirt screen printing industry for five years. In that time I have come to understand that a t-shirt can express a great many opinions, and emotions. It could be something professional like a company t-shirt, or light and fun like a bachelorette part, or it could be something more somber, like a memorial t-shirt for a lost love one. Regardless of the emotion conveyed, everyone who takes the time to customize a shirt is creating that shirt for a reason that is important to them. As such it is important that they have a design that will print well, and help spread the message they are trying to convey. I create all my...
