Hi, I am Nancy and I am the creative resource. The services I offer are not nestled down into a single niche because I enjoy a variety of creative outlets. My experience has that same breadth – a designer at a boutique firm, a credentialed art & photography teacher, and a planner at the corporate office of a big brand where I am sure you have shopped because everyone has (so if you are on the west coast, you may have been in a store I designed).
PHOTOGRAPHY | Specializing in food and product photography, I am always up for an environmental portrait, as well. I work with restaurants and brands, photographing prepared dishes or developing recipes for food brands. I Regardless of what I shoot, I prefer to use natural light and do all my own editing. Plus, I am Foodtography Certified for my food photography.
GRAPHIC DESIGN | A few freelance clients dictate some of what I create, but beyond that, I accept custom requests and make what my heart tells me to. My designs range from simple pieces that serve a purpose, like marketing collateral, to objects that just make you smile. My branding experience ranges from big companies to small shops for whom my services have gone beyond just logo design. Graphic Design for print or digital – I’ve got you covered.
MARKETING | Don’t know what you need? That is okay, I have done plenty of work in marketing and am here to help. Some of the marketing things I do include an audit of what you already have, advertising & editorial calendars, collateral design & execution, brand clarity, and business coaching. If you are trying to pull together a portfolio that showcases your talent or curate a range of services that will meet your client’s needs while enticing them, I have coached others through these processes too.
HAND LETTERING | A personal pastime that has grown into something more. My obscene assortment of pens was justified when I was recruited as the typography artist for Ugobags suitcases and Charity On Top gift cards. That also led to my iPad Pro with Procreate App and Apple Pencil. Plus, I have also done large scale hand lettering on store front signs.

TEACHING & WORKSHOPS | I am a believer in Community Over Competition. This means that I have accepted the call to lift others up. Relationships are important. They are too important for us to get caught up in comparisons. I want to put insecurities aside and just be thankful. Thankful for those around me. So, I want to put these relationships first and share in my tribe’s joy. Part of how I do this is by sharing my knowledge. I host and present at workshops from time to time. If you can’t wait for one, or simply don’t work well under the pressure of a group, I also offer one-on-one sessions – just shoot me an email to inquire. My experience ranges from workshop presentations with nearly 200 people in an auditorium to smaller classroom settings and private one-on-one lessons. A credentialed teacher who understands that you will learn better if you apply the knowledge as it is presented.
