Hope for 2017

Wow! It has been a crazy year. Turns out I launched not one, but TWO businesses this year. I have learned a lot about the event industry while expanding my graphic design business (, and what started out as a quest for a new die-cutting machine turned into a product line selling clothing and other items ( When I started this blog I said I would just jump in and see where it led me… I am still finding out!

I have a lot of projects to share, but one of my New Year’s resolutions is to post weekly and those will have to wait until next time. For now I will leave you with this card that I made with my new Cameo. Happy New Year!

Letting Go

I have been working on my new website and brand for what seems like forever, and it is in that final stage where it is just about there, but there are always a few more tweaks that I can do. I have launched a website before, but somehow this seems bigger, different. I guess it is always like that, whether it is a blog post, a web page, a painting, or a sculpture. How do you know when it is really done?

Well, a few more photographs and it will be live. I can’t wait to share it with you!

Happy Birthday

superdesignerHello world. My first blog post on a new blog.

Yesterday was my birthday, and so it seems like a good time for new beginnings. I am moving in a new direction and creating this blog to document where it leads me.

A former boss once called me a “Super Designer.” I suspect that most graphic designers are asked to do superhuman tasks everyday, and I am not so unique in this line of work, but I still love the idea of being a masked crusader saving the world through graphic design.

I went to graduate school to make sculptures, but spent the last 15 years or so working as a graphic designer, raising 2 kids, and just generally not making as much art as I would like to, but now those kids are in school, we have a house, and I have a studio space. No more excuses. I am casting a wide net and seeing where it takes me. I figure, hey, I’m the super designer, I can design anything.

I hope you will join me in my journey to figure out what that will be.
