To request my resumé, please email me here.
Upon graduation from college, I started freelance work, mainly working in the design and creation of wedding invitations and related stationery. I have done many logo designs, business stationery, corporate identities and internal company documents and still have a tendency to lean toward the social stationery development. I have worked as a designer in commercial businesses throughout the years in addition to my freelance and learned many professional techniques along the way. In May of 2002, my sister-in-law and I opened a small business in downtown Austin, Minn. This business consisted of scrapbook supplies, stamping supplies and, of course, graphic design services. We brought in a good client base, however, we closed our doors the end of 2004. Even though our doors were closed in November of that year, I still continue a customer service relation from that association and have since been doing business. I enjoy what I do, I love that it seems everyday it is something new and the people that I work with I deal with on a personal level and it makes me proud that I can help them enjoy what just might be the most important day of their life (wedding). I have expanded into the web design market and have found that I enjoy that as well. I am self-taught in most all Adobe software, including a high expertise level of Illustrator® and Photoshop® and I enjoy learning new tricks & techniques. I try to keep my professional development fresh and up-to-date so I stay in the here-and-now to provide the best possible services to my clients. If you have any question about my work or any interest in design, please feel free to contact me and give me an idea of what you are looking for.
