I do all of the graphic design and web design for my family’s small businesses in St. Louis which include a bar, restaurant, diner, bowling alley, and indoor miniature golf place. I have a lot of experience designing logos, websites, posters, books, t-shirts, invitations, neon signs, restaurant menus, and email newsletters. One of my favorite projects has been designing the huge 21′ tall neon sign for Magic Mini Golf. It’s animated and features a man and woman playing putt-putt; the golf clubs and ball are in motion as are the big colorful letters.

I’ve won two international neon sign awards in the well-respected international Signs of the Times contest! I won First Place/Best in Show for internally illuminated signs for my Magic Mini Golf sign and First Place/Best in Show in the reader’s choice contest for my Peacock Diner sign.

In addition to designing signs for businesses, I also design neon signs for people’s homes, garages, and offices; a custom neon sign makes a great gift!

I design logos, websites, and print materials for many other clients including law firms, real estate companies, and small businesses.

I also enjoy painting and hand-lettering and sell my art and skills. I love to paint small family portraits in watercolor and gouache; people treasure the paintings because they’re one-of-a-kind and personalized. While it’s possible to find a digital print-out of a family portrait on Etsy, it’s not easy to find someone that can actually hand-make a real painting. That’s why people love to hire me for their family and pet portraits and lettering art. These paintings make great gifts and are true keepsakes, perfect for your wall or mantle.

I also create artwork for custom holiday cards and wedding invitations. I take my paintings and create a digital file that you can print out at home or use to get invitations or greeting cards made. Many of my existing designs for greeting cards are also available for digital download in case you want to browse for something I’ve already created.

I live in Cleveland OH with my husband and two funny dogs.

I’d love to discuss your project with you so please reach out!
