I'm an artist with experience in digital art and traditional art, which gives me a strong base to work on original creative projects. I have been creating and maintaining websites for 20 years, first with HTML and Java and now with CSS (Wordpress).
I'm not really interested in coding but I understand how it works and how graphic design and coding works together.

I have an office filled with all of the latest equipment and resources (large CINTIQ, and the entire Adobe Suite, 3 full size monitors, design reference books, PANTONE) to help bring your project to life.
As well as this I have a fully stocked artist studio for traditional work where necessary.

I understand how graphics and illustrations fit together with practical application, as I have managed websites, designed every kind of media package imaginable from website mockups, blog posts, introductory statements, schedules, logo design, to original illustrations including full size paintings.
I have worked with factories before to implement designs and managed cross-platform designs, from web to book to product.

My strengths are in illustrative work and draftsmanship as I am a classically trained artist in the old European Academic Tradition. I understand product creation process down to the factory level, or the hand-made level, which gives me the ability to get the design right from the start so revisions are eliminated.
(For example, if your logo is being designed for print, lapel pins, t-shirts or various materials I understand how to implement fonts and line work to accommodate for future proofing)

I am a perfectionist, but I am friendly and fun to talk to, I don't do passive-aggressive and will always be honest with you about something, but past a certain point I do not mind if we have different ideas about where a design will be successful. If you want me too advise you on design, and I think a design choice is a bad idea, I will let you know my concerns but I will not argue with you about it. It is ultimately your design and I will not interfere. Some people like to take full control of the project and make all decisions, others feel lost in the process and want my expertise. I am willing to give you either. I don't get egotistical about the work. As long as you are happy that is all that matters.
In my spare time I love playing Eve Online, studying Hermetic Alchemy, gardening and camping.
