Summary

Whether it's for a client, family or friends, I pride myself on always doing a professional job with a fast turnaround. I am proficient with the latest graphic programs and also have actual drawing-board, graphic production experience in layout, paste-up, design, typesetting and illustration, which has given me a good eye for balance and color.

I have an extensive background in the advertising field and, along with my supervisory experience, I know the importance of providing quality and accuracy while keeping within strict budgets and deadlines.

I restore and retouch images using the latest software to digitally repair cracks, tears, fading or yellowing and remove tape marks on old or damaged photos. I can make double chins, wrinkles and blemishes disappear, add hairlines, change lighting, create spot-color effects and remove or add complete subjects or backgrounds according to client specifications. I also create custom photo-print albums, invitations, programs and unique mailers for any event, small or large, with a one-of-a-kind, professional touch.

If you think I can fill the needs of your company, I look forward to hearing from you to discuss it further!
