She has created web sites, logos, corporate identities, and a wide range of print materials including booklets and exhibit catalogs, brochures, postcards, business cards, and stationery.

Her design work is informed by her ongoing experience as an artist, arts writer, and educator as well as by past publications experience in the academic world. Her firsthand knowledge of the art world gives her a clear understanding of the specific issues faced by artists; she is able to meet the needs of artists at any stage of their career, whether emerging, mid-career, or mature artists.
