An award-winning senior designer working on page and screen.
I was interested in fine arts at a young age, but my dad was an electrical engineer teacher and he collected the newest technologies. The combination of being on a computer since I could spell, paired with my interest in dabbling with photoshop landed me a career in graphic design.
I am still interested in painting and sculpture and will jump at the opportunity to get my hands dirty. When I am not at my computer, you might find me practicing calligraphy in my sunlit studio with a bottomless latte. I bought a new gold ink from Paper & Ink Arts and it is incredible. You will see me at the next Creative Mornings talk — my secret is that I set the alarm on my phone for 10:55am. The horse depicted above is Constable James Quinn. He was the first Chicago Officer to sacrifice his life in the line of duty. I was fortunate enough to be commissioned by the Chicago Cubs for the Horses of Honor public art show in 2015, and have helped to raise 8.9 million dollars for the Chicago Police Memorial!
If you are interested in collaborating on a project or would just like to grab a beer, please drop me a line. I'm a lover of volleyball, blueberries, and craft brews — and I enjoy talking to strangers.
They aren't all of my niece, they sometimes include silly sketches, photos or paintings I am working on.
Unless you're bringing craft brews, then just stop by.
