In My Happy Place…My Backyard

…that’s where you will find me, gardening, most likely, if I’m not teaching at the University of Minnesota Duluth (August–May) or doing freelance design work (all year round). I have taught graphic design classes at the University for around 15 years total. Before that, I was working in Minneapolis, at a variety of public relations and design positions, the most recent at the University of St. Catherine, as their Web Goddess. I use my 20 years of experience plus my many degrees to pass on, hopefully good, design knowledge to my students of graphic design. 

I also like to mess around with multiple media…pencils, water colors, gouache and digital media to create work that uses my own words and images to share my life experiences with the world at large.
