Who do I work with?
I love to work with arts clients looking for a long-term strategic marketing partner who can supply quality marketing imagery with an eye to consistent branding, audience outreach, and solid marketing strategy.
Arts organizations are always creating new art for their communities, and that means new marketing materials, graphics, and strategies for engaging audiences and promoting events. I am the person you can rely on to deliver these on time, on message, and on budget.
I work on either a per-project contract basis or a monthly retainer when regular work is needed. I maintain my own office and my own up-to-date technology and supplies. To ensure I’m giving you the best work I possibly can, I am always taking courses and attending seminars to learn new design and marketing concepts. I am also constantly working in the theatre and comics industries, pulling fresh ideas from everywhere I find them.
If you are part of an arts organization, I am the best tool to have in your marketing team’s back pocket.
