Please do check out my design portfolio, as well as my portrait editing and photo restoration portfolios, then get in touch to discuss your project or individual needs.

Design is the search

for a magical balance between

business and art;

art and craft;

intuition and reason; concept and detail; playfulness and formality; client and designer; designer and printer; and printer and public.
