I have a print graphics background, and over the years I've also incorporated web design into my portfolio. I worked over sixteen years in the print industry, not only as a graphic artist, but in all aspects of pre-press, including multi-color stripping and working with film output for process color.
For 15 years, while raising my children, I worked as a school library technician and did contract work for local customers, schools and organizations. Currently, I'm the owner and graphic designer of a laser engraving company (ArcLight Laser) as well as continuing my freelance design with Purple Pizazz Designs.
I love to be creative in everything I do, graphic design allows my creativity to continually grow. With my print-based graphic background, doing web design and social media, has evolved naturally. Times have changed, and our lives have become internet-based, so having a web presence, as well as social media marketing, has become a vital link for any business, large or small.
I use Adobe's Creative Suite, and could easily spend all day working in Photoshop, my favorite program. I also use InDesign, Illustrator and Dreamweaver. I like to work with internet platforms that allow the customer to make simple changes, when needed.
