I have been a designer/ illustrator for 23 years. My varied background includes a first career teaching Geography in an Ottawa high school, and a later design education at Ryerson University. With extensive travel – much of it by bicycle – and interests in heritage preservation, modern design and the environment, my work is informed by a wide range of influences. As a generalist freelancer my portfolio covers a wide range of work. Graphic Design work includes logos and company identity, printed materials, display and small website design. As an Illustrator, I produce editorial art, advertising, educational, greeting card and web illustration.
