Graphic Design

I have been studying and practicing graphic design for nearly 2 decades. Before that, I worked as a seamstress for a costume shop, + various temp admin jobs while living in the UK, New Zealand and Europe  (including a stint at the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna!) I graduated with honors from the American School of Paris; I have a BA in French from U Mass Boston; and studied for several years at New England School of Art & Design, in their electronic graphic design and fine arts programs. I like computer design tools and am proficient in Adobe CS, but prefer working by hand when creating my own projects at home (although I’ll sometimes base a design on digital output I’ve started in Photoshop or Illustrator. See my Snow Queen for an example)!
