I am a native New Mexican, born and raised in Las Cruces. I have always loved the arts. Even as a small girl I enjoyed sketching and taking photos. During my 25 years working at New Mexico State University, I had the opportunity to take college classes in graphic design. In the Fall of 2006, I started taking one class each semester at the Doña Ana Community College. In the Fall of 2011, I received my Associate Degree in Digital Graphics Technology, with Crimson Scholar honors. I have since retired from NMSU and started my own free-lance graphic design and photography business. The creative freedom I now have is much more challenging and rewarding than sitting behind a desk. Computer technology changes daily and I strive to use these tools to enhance my skills. I enjoy working in the arts to create logos, illustrations, brochures, or web sites for my clients. My photography skills have also been enriched with photography classes and workshops. Please visit my portfolio page and the links below to view samples of my photography and graphic design creations. Thank you for your interest. I hope I can help you on your next Creative Idea!
