Description My original clayboard etching was inspired by a raven in Alaska. With Mt. Edgecumbe in the background, Black Beard is perched in a Sitka spruce, admiring his treasures which include: a Swiss army knife; a bent-up fork; a string of pearls; a broken pair of glasses; and part of a watch.

With more than 20 years experience in her field, she has produced nationally published, award-winning designs and illustrations, including product packaging, corporate identity, brochures, collateral pieces, and print ads.

Her apporach to graphic design and illustration is best described by the words of the ancient poet Rumi: Let the beauty you love be what you do.
