Owner | Designer
I grew up wanting to be an artist. Realizing the term 'starving artist' was a reality, I chose a career in law. I was fortunate enough to do some traveling after my kids were grown, and applied my background in art to my hobby in photography. With an artistic eye, I am able to take some creative shots.
I have always had a keen interest in computers and graphic design. When home computers became a thing, I decided to build my own from scratch. When the worldwide web became a way of life, I created my first website using software and coding to record my travels while living on a sailboat.
With today's technology, the opportunities are endless, and creating websites is now my passion.
Using WiX platforms, I am able to apply my creativity to build stunning, yet affordable and easy to use websites for small businesses and nonprofits.
I created my first website in 2008 using Microsoft Website software and code. When web design host programs became available, I tried them all. In 2012, my husband and I launched our own business with a product we designed and invented. We utilized some standard web hosting sites, and then discovered Wix. Wix has come a long way since its inception in 2007 and I have used their platform to create numerous amazing websites for clients.
I am self taught in just about everything. I studied art at McHenry County College, and studied law in the law library of the McHenry County Courthouse in Illinois. When I began getting into photography, I learned the ins and outs of the Adobe editing programs and learned to make stunning artistic photographs. I applied my artistic abilities to web design and learned html code by trial and error.
I am a skilled photographer, photo editor, and web designer.
I am well versed in Adobe Photoshop and other Adobe programs as well as Techsmith Video Editing software.
I am familiar with SEO, Social Media platforms, advertising, and posting requirements.
