I believe the best working relationships with a graphic designer begins when the designer's style resonates with the client's.


Complementary work styles can really help also. I like to get things done quickly and efficiently. Quick and open communication are key to project success. 


Once you find a “good fit,” turn your graphics needs over to them and set them free! Then you are free to do what you do best!


This portfolio is a reflection of what happens when I am free to create stunning work for my clients.

Santa Barbara Graphic Designer


B.S. in Graphic Communications, Cal Poly, SLO
A.A. in Graphic Arts, Santa Barbara City College

I have enjoyed every moment of designing for my clients. They often turn into friends! I have been fortunate to have met and helped inspirational people. I treat my clients businesses as though they were mine. I want their success just as much as they do. Graphic design is a passion I've had since I was in high school. I knew I wanted to be an artist and my career in graphic arts has  give me the creative element I needed while helping others realize their success. A perfect blend!


Cooking has been a love of mine for a long time now. I read blogs, magazines any recipe I can find. Love watching food and health trends. I cook almost every night for my family and sometimes extended family of 15!  My 9 year old daughter is going to take her first cooking class and I am excited! She made me breakfast in bed for Mother's day and now she is hooked!


Teaching Group Ex at the Santa Barbara YMCA is a life long passion. I have made wonderful friends, and the crazy choreography and tasty tunes keep my classes moving; which is important after sitting at a computer all day.


Going to Cal Poly SLO to study graphic communications was the best choice I ever made. Upon graduating I moved back to Santa Barbara and worked as a graphic designer for UCSB and WIlson printing. I began my own business 23 years ago. I am blessed to work doing what I LOVE in Santa Barbara, California. My office is in a photography studio owned by my wonderful and talented husband, photographer Eric Gordon of The Product Photography Studio, the largest and best product photography studio on the South Coast.
