For as long as I can remember I have had a desire to be creative. I discovered my graphic artistry skills in high school where I then went on to graduate with honours from the Graphic Communication program at NAIT, receiving the Canadian Printing Industries Scholarship. To further my knowledge of design I then graduated from the Digital Media Comprehensive course at NAIT.
Following my education I gained experience in many areas of graphic design such as magazine advertisement, ATM digital graphics, highway signage, banner and display designs, business branding - digital & print, published book cover consulting, small and large document layout and design from (10 pages up to 1000), website design, promotional materials and photo editing. Providing design solutions for the Stollery Children’s Hospital,
The Juice Plus Company +® Canada and many businesses/individuals locally have been some of the many highlights of my career thus far.
With 17 years of experience in the graphic design field, I offer services for personal and business branding, including but not limited to, the design of logos, business cards, websites, posters, advertisements, newsletters, print and digital layout, as well as photo editing (restoration, product isolation).
I believe that my role is to bring my clients ideas and visions to life and truly enjoy being a conduit for that process!
I have always had a passion for the environment and felt a desire to do something to play a part in keeping the Earth healthy (no matter how small). One day I was lucky enough to stumble upon preciousplastic.com and my dream was born!
I wanted to be part of this mission of repurposing plastic and began my own journey in figuring out just how to do that.
The dream started with a credit card shredder repurposed into a plastic bottle cap shredder and when that seemed to be a success I began to start collecting bottle caps from the community I live in.
This mission of mine is an on-going project to transform plastic bottle caps (that would otherwise end up in the landfill) into useful products that can be used by the community. By shredding, melting down, and injecting into moulds, it is my hope that one day soon this dream will be a reality. Stay posted on my progress by visiting my blog for any exciting updates!
