T-shirt/silkscreen design (note: I do the digital design only - not t-shirt printing. I have however been known to do artsy hand silkscreening and stencil prints, but I currently do not have the equipment to print onto fabric)

2004 - After my 3 years of schooling on Multi-Media Design and Production (website creation/delevopment, graphic design, video filming & editing, special effects, Flash animation) & Digital Post Production at Fanshawe College,  I received an internship at Kem Murch Productions Inc. where I have gained valuable experience in creating print elements and packages, including VHS & DVD Jackets and labels, handbooks, newsletters & activity books.

Kem shares my passion to produce positive videos and print packages and ran a wonderful business commited to producing multicultural videos, focusing on health, injury prevention, environmental and social issues.  Her productions have left a positive impact on the viewer and  this world. I could relate and was inspired.

I want my creativity to be used to produce something positive.  I like to create web sites and designs products, for companies, organizations and businesses who share my love for art, music, people, animals, the environment and a happy, healthy world.

2016 - After more than a decade of being a freelance print designer, I am anticipating more amazing projects in the future. Contact me and we might get the chance to produce something inspiring.

The client requested a logo design and she had a very specific vision in mind. We worked together to develop something that satisfied us both. This logo really does tell a story and lets the viewer know exactly what Urban Tails is all about.

I've been inspired to create a source for information for sustainable living practices. The site is in it's infancy, so there is not much content yet, I've just done the design. Soon it will have information on housing, food, energy and transportation - and how we can make simple lifestyle changes to live with the earth instead of against it.
Please let me know if you like the design and what you think should be included on the site. I could use some writers. Contact me if interested in participating.
