Welcome to my website, a space of Expressionship* where everything that I Am For lives and grows - creative design, beauty, gratitude, connection, connecting, story-telling, authenticity, integrity, learning, expressing, mindfulness and inspiration.
My design work shows a sampling of a multidisciplinary range of my work and process. My design career began in the finance industry at PricewaterhouseCoopers, and United Marketing Services in New York City, always following the next greater challenge, to be open to any industry. Educated at Goshen College and The AICA/SF, with a design and life-philosophy to always grow professionally and creatively.
My blog is where my musings can muse, and my inner inspiration lives.
Inspired by the importance of living creatively, and whole-heartedly, not perfectly, on March 8th I started a 100 Day Art-Blog Challenge. My personal assignment was to work a design and blog a minimum of one hour a day and post the process, in a transparent way. To start designing into my Blog topics, and a Book of Opposites concepts. I ended the challenge with a focus on my own logo and brand concept, all lines are beautiful.
My logo page is for the creative process of designing a logo for myself, and this new "brand" that I am becoming. It's not only about being a designer, it's something more expansive, includes more concepts ... It is and I am a work in progress ... I ended up finishing the work for this logo in the last two weeks of my art challenge!
An inspiration page is my ode to the spiritual practice of voices who have stood alone, who inspire me in their unique and wholehearted sense of self. Their wild hearts have had the courage to stand for something bigger than themselves, through their art, stories, films, scripts, research, speeches, memoirs, soliloquies, and most profoundly, their ability to flip a perceived and insurmountable Negative into an ageless, spectacular and boundless Positive.
In the words of poet Mark Nepo, "To be the Poem ... We are being turned into a Noun, when the Aliveness is staying in the Verb." This website is me being the verb. My verb ....
