Greetings! Here's a little more about who I am, what I do and where.
I graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. After spending almost a decade working in Chicago and participating in group gallery and performance art showcases, I returned to my home city of Milwaukee to open Bliss Studio & Gallery in Riverwest. While shooting and designing for Bliss Gallery, I focused on portraits, both commercially and artistically shooting creatives and working with local musicians and artists. I found it incredibly rewarding working with the talented artists of Milwaukee.
In the last 15 years, I have focused on my graphic design career with Quorum Architects, as well as broadening my freelancing career. When I am not working to help brand and market local non-profits and creatives, I am working in clay in my shared ceramic studio in Clarke Square.
My ceramic work focuses on the colors and traditional styles of Japanese handicraft. I am drawn to the simplicity and the love of form the Japanese impart into their wares. Hundreds of years of design research has made the most gentle and yet durable works.
In the past decade, I have designed artwork for Washington Park Partners, The Bella Donnas, Enough Said, Olson House and Uncorked.com in addition to many other local and regional professionals. I have consulted on design jobs for numerous local businesses and non-profits, performed photo retouching for area photographers and photographed locally and on location. From large scale project management to smaller individual marketing and advertising, I can boost your business with great design and imagery.
