When I was a kid living in Belgium for a few years, a beautifully designed can of peas on a supermarket shelf made me want to be a designer even though I didn’t know there was such a profession back then. I wanted to be the person who made things like cans of peas in a supermarket look so enticing.

Design is about much more than looks, but we all know that looking good is at least half the battle. I have the training and skills to help you analyze your project and shape it to get the results you want. My illustration work can be a part of that if it fits, or can be commissioned separately.

I love using my design and image-making skills for causes I believe in, small business and individuals. Contact me if you have a project in mind.

I also run a bnb in the summer and do what I can to help the Street Cats of Vis year-round.
