Route 66 Stamp


The goal of this project was to create a stamp design based on some significant or well known place or event. Though the well known road is the subject of the stamp, the jazz standard "Route 66" by Bobby Troup provided inspiration for my design.

Library Logo


This logo was created for the library at the Loudon campus of Northern Virginia Community College. The gold and green are the school's colors, but the "leaf" design was inspired by a pattern in the library's carpet.

Christmas Reflections Announcement

Program Flyer

When I decided to perform a Christmas concert for my neighbors and a few friends, I created this flyer to announce the occasion and to generate interest for this lesser known perfomer. ;)                                                                      


Watering Can

I used a gestalt technique to create this watering can. Our brains fill in the missing edges and we see a completed object.



As a study in biomorphic design, I chose the subject of this piece in anticipation of my first (but hopefully not my last!) trip to the City of Love.

Non-Representational House


This piece, an abstract representation of my house, was fun to create and it is still one of my favorite designs due to its whimsical nature.

Product Label

My first attempt at designing for a product resulted in this lime green and orange label and carrier.

Wedding Announcement

Wedding Announcement

Long before I had any formal training in design, I decided to create my own wedding invitations, announcements, programs, and table cards. Shown here is an announcement with one of the response cards that I sent with an invitation.

Wedding Program

Wedding Program

This simple wedding program seems like a greater accomplishment when I remember that I hadn't even heard of Adobe InDesign when I created it!
