A freelance writer for over a decade, working on projects from fiction and poetry to local news publications to business and technical writing. For the past three years I have also been freelancing as a graphic designer, primarily helping customers create custom gifts and engagement and birth announcements. I am currently in the process of co-editing a novel before it's second publication and am co-writing a novel with my husband. Writing and art have been a passion of mine all of my life and I enjoy having the opportunity to share this passion.

OBJECTIVE: Pursue a career that enables me to practice and continue to learn my craft of painting, drawing and photography through experiences brought on by every day life. . QUALIFICATIONS Using my abilities learned and observed to portray a subject in the best possible way. My technique in drawing allows sharp, precise imagery, and my approach to painting offers vibrant colors and deeper levels to a subject. Using darkroom and studio techniques, along with the desire to create a dramatic atmosphere in my photography, builds on the creativity that drives my art. The opportunities to teach both drawing and photography classes, as well as tutor students in painting, drawing and photography classes, have better honed my abilities in each area. I have taught art courses every year since 2001, including private lessons. With such tasks as matting, canvas stretching, etc. I am able to present my work or others’ work with a more hands-on approach, rather than paying others to do the work.

I have also worked in cartooning since I was a child, and constantly drawing the characters that have inspired me.

I'm an artistic person, and though I may not be very experienced, my uncontrolled creativity could be the one thing you're looking for. Drawing and painting are two things I enjoy doing- I'm very serious about my art. Editing isn't so bad, I'm very meticulous about using the correct punctuation and the correct spelling. I can do graphic design, but I'm not going to lie and say I'm perfect at it. There are plenty of people who can probably work it a whole lot better, but everybody's different, and you can't assume who is the best if you don't look at everybody and give them a chance.
