One of a Kind Artwork
About this pro
I have won many awards at Belk and have been depended upon for concepts that I carry to reality. I was the senior illustrator at Belk with 6 illustrators that I supervised. When photography came into being for fashion I was promoted to art director and was the first to push and use digital photography. I am very proficient in retouch and image manipulation, illustration - both digital and by hand, love topography, and work in InDesign for layout and some graphics. I often shoot my own images with a Canon D5 and have all the studio equipment to shoot product. I can provide samples. Best of all - I love it! Everything: the people, the challenge, the medias. Since retiring I miss the work, the creativity and the people. So I've started One of a Kind Artwork where I can spend the time needed on a one one basis to make their creation really "one of a kind".
Customers rated this pro highly for responsiveness, professionalism, and punctuality.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?No - try to work within a client's budget, depending on the project I average between $20-$30 per hour. But I prefer a budget so I know up front what the limitations are. Artwork is about the subject (s) medium, time factor - so it varies. I try to make my work affordable to the client.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Constantly! Read and study everything I can find. I am working with some new software from Adobe. It's impossible to learn all the software out there which is why I love the digital work so much - you are constantly learning new things that you can do now that wasn't available 10 minutes again.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?It's been my desire since I was a child! That and raising and showing horses!
