About My Business:
I have been freelancing as an illustrator and graphic designer since 1997. I worked my share of eight to five jobs in the early years in print for newspapers, magazines and advertising agencies. After five years as a senior designer with Country Insurance and Financial Services, I moved to Minneapolis and have been operating my own design studio since. Thanks to the digital age, I create computer illustration and graphic design for clients all over the world.
My focus in the last several years has been web, direct mail, brochure, corporate identity and other print design. And I do plenty of logo development, branding, clothing, and product illustration.
Back in the day, I went to Grand Rapids Junior College, received my Associate's Degree in fine art focusing on graphic design. This was due to a wonderful program I attended during high school at Kent Skill Center. There I was required to take two weeks in each area of the graphics department, from illustration to printing. It was then that I met my first Mac computer. These Macs sat next the CompuGraphic machines and were so small, so powerful, and so addictive!
I was accepted to Calvin College's Fine Arts program, but decided to avoid long-term student loans and join the world of advertising. I have been an illustrator and designer ever since. And I love it.
