Since 1989 I have been completing a wide range of assignments for local, regional, national and international companies. Creating calligraphic titling for Eddie Bauer catalogues launched me into the realm of commercial work after my training in the traditional lettering arts was complete. Lettering for package design, wine labels, corporate identity, seasonal campaigns and corporate publications has been ongoing in my studio. I began working as an illustrator and calligrapher for the greeting card industry in 1998, and that also continues today.
Beginning in 2011, I have been designing hand-drawn maps for trails, specific properties, and publications. Recently I completed a series of complex maps and schematic illustrations for Skagit County PUD. These are now installed in their Judy Reservoir Water Treatment Plant in Washington State. Other clients include Skagit Land Trust and the North Cascades National Park. In 2016 Yale University Press will publish a book illustrated with four maps hand-drawn by me.
My art services include comp work for concept exploration to full, finished work for broad application. I no longer accept traditional calligraphy jobs such as custom poetry, envelope addressing, or wedding documents.
I have the capability of delivering all artwork as digital files, whether in single files bitmap format or PhotoShop layers. When a high quality vector file is required, professional vector conversion is available as a separate service.
Clients include: Food Services of America, Nordstrom, Inc., Eddie Bauer, Inc., Seattle Chocolates, Papyrus, AquaStar, Tamarack Cellars, Safeco Insurance, Starbucks, Inc., RSVP, division of Sellers Publishing.
