WEBSITE DESIGN & GRAPHIC DESIGN
Currently, I work for a full service design company in Newport, RI, as head of web development and have been designing and building websites for over 20 years. I have extensive experience in custom website design and development as well as in setting up full eCommerce websites, custom blogs, social media pages and creating e-newsletters with Constant Contact and Mail Chimp.
While website development is my first love, I also create brochures, business cards, catalogs, presentations, ads and other printed materials.
I do freelance website design and development as well as provide graphic design services for select clients. Please contact me for more information.

Besides being a total computer "Geek", I enjoy cycling, gardening, hiking, nature and of course painting and drawing. I also teach art classes to adults and children as well as classes in jewelry making and in Zentangle®.
I have illustrated 3 adult coloring books written by Doreen Virture: Messages from Your Angles, Messages from the Fairies and Messages from the Mermaids, all published through Hay House Publishing and available on Amazon. Each coloring book has 44 illustrations drawn by me and accompanied by text and poems by Doreen.
I am also the author and illustrator of the book, Paper Doll Fashion Workshop, published in 2016 by Walter Foster Publishing. Other Walter Foster books I’ve contributed to are The Art of Zentangle® and The Art of Fashion Tangling, which are also available on Amazon.
There is more to a website than just a pretty face - I focus on creating search engine optimized (SEO) websites that will provide a launching point for web based marketing campaigns.
I believe a website should look good and be easy to use, regardless of the device! Responsive Web Design makes your website look good on all devices, from larger desktop monitors, laptops and tablets to smart phones, making sure you reach all potential customers no matter the device they are using.
