About

I am a corporate photographer who discovered her love for all things design. Coming from a marketing and advertising environment I am naturally drawn to branding design. Drawing is fun, creating is priceless!
I see myself as a Crime Scene Investigator for design - establishing a client's profile from the specifics of the brief is part of the challenge and investigating the 'clues' and compiling all the facts into a design in order to 'crack the case' is what I enjoy most.
