    __________________________________________________
    I was one of the lucky ones - I knew from the age of seven that I wanted a career in art. I was blessed with the talent of drawing what I see and new I wanted to per sue my creativity. I discovered that graphic design would allow for that creativity and with practical business sense I could build a career with my passion for art.

    Being involved in all aspects of client projects – from strategic planning and consulting to implementing a campaign – allows me to insure the best possible outcomes for my clientele and their goals.

    I have been in the design field for 17 years! My love of what I do lead me to my second greatest Passion - Teaching! I was invited to teach at Pueblo Community College where I have worked five years - building a solid foundation for many young designers.
