As a graphic designer from Southeast Wisconsin I primarily focus on brand identity in the forms of logos, website design, posters, and other promotional and advertising needs. After working as the Lead Graphic Designer at the UW-Parkside Small Business Development Center, my capabilities grew which helped me transition smoothly into freelance and contract work.
As a studio artist, the computer becomes more of a small tool to the overall idea. Cut paper and screen print are techniques I use to express a more abstract play on shapes, color, and texture. Symmetrical designs are a common theme while keeping it somewhat representational to facilitate a stronger connection with the viewer. The process of screen printing has also appeared within another important area of interest of mine which is through the art of apparel decoration.
The combination of these studio and design interests help to possess versatile skills and knowledge. Graphic design, screenprinting, embroidery, ceramics, printmaking, woodworking, photography, website design, papermaking + collage, and many things in between, all come together as the paint on my pallet. Trying new art forms, my growing matchbox collection, antique objects, semi truck designs, signage, music, and the people I surround myself with are a few of the things that inspire me.
Besides the showcase of my own design, selling and making homemade goods alongside my life partner is one of the ultimate goals. Together Jeffrey and I plan to start our own home-goods business, Harbored Goods. Graphic tees, furniture, prints, ceramics, home décor, accessories, and many other products will be available, starting locally in the Southeast Wisconsin area and online in due time. We are looking forward to what the future holds – stay tuned.
