Experienced Art Director who has worn many titles (Art Director, Creative Manager, designer, with moments of illustration and styling thrown in). Most at home working a photoset either instudio, or on location. Transformed my passion for fashion into a career. Skilled in and knows her way around a MAC, CS5 (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Bridge), and QuarkXpress. Can navigate around Microsoft Office, and brings a fashion, and trend knowledge to her job. Takes a project or idea from concept to completion. Worked in many printed platforms (POP, billboards/busbenches, catalogs, inserts, direct mail, special events, logos, packaging). A natural people person (from Texas no doubt) who lives for a challenge, but enjoys nurturing others to grow into their potential as well.
