The daughter of an architect and an artist, I grew up surrounded by good design. I received my bachelor's degree in Fine Art from the College of Creative Studies at University of California, Santa Barbara, and later attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. I have been a freelance graphic designer of web sites, advertising and printed materials since 1995. I live in Cumberland, Maine with my very creative husband and daughter, two cats, and six chickens.
