aBOUT THE OWNER
I've been an artist since I could hold a crayon. At least that's what my parents have always told me. I'm a Graphic and Web Designer/Photographer from Mason City, IL a small rural community in the middle of Springfield, Lincoln, and Peoria.
I have used HTML code for web design for over a decade, starting in High School. In 2001, I started building small business sites on top of personal pages. I have years of Graphic Design experience and am proficient in the following Adobe software: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Dreamweaver. I have had the opportunity to build, help design, re-design and maintain numerous sites and am looking forward to working on more, potentially yours, soon.
I have also been working in and around photography, advertising and marketing for 6 years. Starting a college magazine at Eastern Illinois University, taking over the ad campaign as well as taking on the Graphic Design Editor position, then moving home to Mason City to take over the high school yearbook and start my family. I have done free-lance work with reputable studios in central Illinois. I have the eye for great shots, a personable attitude, and the computer training to enhance your photos to the highest quality in the area.
Starting in 2011, I am joining the exciting team at SJB Promotions. I am excited to start working with your business to find that perfect fit for your company or organization with an exciting promotional item that will help drive sales and increase your visibility.
