A Little About MeDesigner, painter, health coach and lover of good food.
Hi! My background is in Fine Arts from Boston University where I majored in painting. After graduation, I moved to New York and began a career in freelance editorial illustration. Some of my proudest work was for The New Yorker.
I’ve been working as a graphic designer/art director for 22 years, evolving with the endless technological changes. I love solving design challenges for large agencies and small businesses alike. I also thrive being part of a creative team, especially during launch projects.
For the last several years I’ve created several websites using WordPress, and I’m thrilled that the process is now more drag and drop. Love that!
My other interests include health coaching, where I guide people to improve their wellness through lifestyle and nutrition upgrades, and painting, where I continue to have fun with the wonderful world of color and texture.
Early Editorial Illustration
INX is a syndicated illustration service where professionals buy and download editorial art. When I first moved to New York, I accidentally met one of the founders of this new group of editorial illustrators and in no time I was contributing to weekly editorial published projects. It was so exciting! I never considered myself political and eventually realized this venue was not the right fit for me, but it was great fun while it lasted.
Each artist would illustrate a hot political topic that was discussed in the room and submit it to INX in a few days. It was then circulated through this syndicate and printed in newspapers around the country. I’ve highlighted my Marcos illustration in red, used in their promotion. View INXart.com today.
The New York Times and INX
Although the quality of the INX reproductions here are less than perfect, they demonstrate how these editorial illustrations might have been used in newspapers. I’ve also included a few illustrations for The New York Times.

I’ve included a variety of my early illustrations here. The Greek Cathedral in NYC hosted a festive boat ride around Manhattan once a year and I created several of the promotional posters. Each year the theme changed which was great fun. Other illustrations include holiday cards and caricatures.
