Draw·er·ist (n): 1. an amalgamation of 'drawer' & 'artist'. 2. Official company title coined for me by Scott Detweiler, Big Cheese over at Maelstrom Solutions (I work with some strange but exceptionally talented people.)
I support my design addiction by freelancing for partner companies Maelstrom Solutions and sister company Ideal Campaig; Envano Inc., and Imagine That Creative. From my kitchen-counter headquarters in a tiny Wisconsin town on the shores of Lake Michigan, I design logos, websites, and print graphics for small business, Fortune 500's, and political candidates all over the country. My work has been featured in The New York Times and the Queens Chronicle. Did I mention I’m a stay-at-home mother of 4?
My goal is to be able to keep doing what I'm doing until I physically can't do it anymore, but if I could take it one step further, it would be to break out into international design, especially if it means travel. I was raised overseas, which gives me a unique perspective on the broader international marketplace.
Specialties: Graphics and web design, branding, social media marketing
