It is somewhat ironic that I now use the words “designer” and “design” to describe who I am and what I do. Up until March 2009 when I received my license those were the only terms allowed (there are strict rules about how you can use “architect”), and I wrinkled my nose thinking it was so bland and non-descript.

Now I see the freedom and versatility that lets me begin to depict the architecture, IT, landscape, website, artsy, and other creative endeavors I embark on.

My husband is often the photographer. Sometimes we’ve each taken a camera and come back with even more images.

My passion is for making it easy for busy people to capture the important moments in their lives. I like problem solving, crafting solutions, observing how people behave in their environments, and learning about people’s experiences.

Whether you’re struggling to finish something you started, or would like some creative assistance, I’d be happy to work with you to tell your story.

Personalized, handmade greeting cards and decor

It’s human nature to desire that feeling of belonging.

Handmade greeting cards with handwritten “thank yous” and “thinking of yous” don’t go out of style. Special moments in life should be elegantly shared.
