As a full time freelance artist/designer I look forward to working with clients across the globe to make their visions come to life for business & creative projects! I have 25+ years of artistic experience, beginning with receiving a BFA in illustration, painting & graphics from Mason Gross School of the Arts (Rutgers) in 1988. I've been commissioned to create artwork and illustrations, graphics, marketing/promo materials and photography for clients from across the US & abroad. Over the last 10+ years I have been Illustrating for craft & greeting card companies, publishers/authors and historical organizations & have extensive experience in marketing/fundraising & creating promotional graphic design pieces for medical offices, non-profit organizations and small businesses. I pride myself on meeting deadlines, keeping in regular communication with my clients in an organized fashion to produce work that pleases my clients & collectors!
