I am an artist and designer working from my home studio in Pennsylvania. I spent 23 years specializing in graphic design, art direction and project management at Rodale, Inc., a global health and wellness content company. My work there designing book interiors and covers combined both the business and creative sides of publishing. At this point in my career, I am excited to be spending more of my time creating away from the computer, and getting back to my roots as a maker. I began making jewelry at a young age and was most recently working with copper and glass using the torch fire enameling process. Currently, I am painting with acrylics and loving it! You can see my paintings on this site, and some in progress work on Instagram.
I am enjoying a great balance in my life, doing freelance design for select clients, and painting. Feel free to contact me about any projects you need help with. I love meeting new people and problem solving.
