I like to contribute.
Whether through gardening and yardwork,
office and administrative assistance,
or helping someone tell their story,
I like to use my skills and talents
to foster potential and discover
new ways to achieve results.
I have a diploma in Design from
BCIT and Emily Carr University, and
although I work mainly with Office
and Creative Suite software, I also
continue to challenge myself by
adapting to new technology.
With a degree in Natural Science and
certificate in Silviculture, I have spent
many years working in BC forests,
where I am thankful to live and
continue to find inspiration.
"Well on the Way" was a 50-page monthly newsletter (2011-2018) produced for the South Cariboo Community Planning Council - a group of organizations working to promote the health, safety and sense of belonging for residents in the South Cariboo (features art by local artists on the front page).
I am currently producing "The Clinton Lariat" and "Buzz Bulletin."
The South Cariboo Seniors Directory was created for the Age Friendly Society of the South Cariboo. Working hard with the directory committee, we created a 24-page booklet providing important and easy-to-read information with the goal of helping seniors to find out about and access resources available to them.
Tsilhqot'in Voices is a long-term project resulting in a 48-page hardcover photo book describing the land and people of the Chilcotin Plateau in the BC Interior. More information here.
Past projects have focussed on typography and layout. I am currently working on a biography to be released next year.
Wrote text only for the South Cariboo Visitor Guide, as well as various informational brochures (design by Barta Design). Example of my writing here.
Worked with small producers to create labels for honey sales, coffee-roasting and jewellery-making businesses.
Designed new and edited existing business cards.

Using both digital tools and hand-drawings to create imagery.
