A blue flame indicates a fire that burns hotter, brighter and stronger. Together we can send forth a strong bright light.
I have been involved with artistic endeavors forever. In my youth, I excelled in art and music classes, explored all needle arts, made most of my clothes and became a graphic designer, self-taught. I see design in everything. How furniture is arranged, letter spacing on license plates and colors in a garden. It’s my gift.
My combined interest in science and art lead to a BS in Art (handmade letterpress books and handmade paper) with a focus in Zoology from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and a MFA from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor in Medical and Biologic Illustration.
I have worked as a graphic designer and illustrator in corporate and agency environments where I have been acknowledged with numerous awards. Operating a freelance business as BluBlaze Creative for over fifteen years, I currently live in the Denver CO area and have been studying Botanic Illustration at the Denver Botanical Gardens. Having recently received the Foundational Certificate in Botanical Art and Illustration, I am currently investigating options for continuing study with the goal of submitting work for the Diploma in Botanical Illustration.
I am available as an independent contractor with large and small companies throughout metro Denver and for organizations throughout the country.
