My love affair with art and equines began quite some time ago. Ever since I can remember, art has been an important part of my life, as have horses. As a kid if I wasn't riding, dreaming or reading about horses, I was drawing or painting them. I have won several awards for my paintings with equine themes. As an adult it was natural for me to follow a career in the print and graphic arts industry yet I continued my love affair with horses.
I have my Journeyman papers as a Lithographic Stripper working from the days when everything was done mechanically. When the creative aspect of that trade fizzled due to digital technology I went back to college and graduated into Graphic Art. I worked in the industry for over 20 years when a new love entered my life, my daughter. At that point in time I chose to stay home and parent - freelancing, along with a few extra courses in marketing, has made that possible.
As a longtime horselover, owner, breeder and trainer, I have a good understanding of what makes an effective advertisement for your farm and your stock and know how important advertising is to a successful business. Having been involved with all aspects of the print business I have the technical knowledge necessary to create a design that works!
I can if necessary advise you on what makes for a successful advertisement. It is my personal belief that simple is sensational! Don't cram the page with every little bit of information about your business. With today's technology it is a simple matter to grab your reader's attention with some attention getting graphics and lead them to further information via your website, facebook page or blog, etc.
Have a look at my extensive portfolio of published ads, logos, business cards, etc., then get in touch with me so we can discuss your advertising needs. I look forward to hearing from you!
