Job Description
During my time with AAC I have covered all aspects of design work from basic concepts and layouts through to final printed art work. This also included taking briefs from clients, both local and international, working closely with our account executives on projects, going on photoshoots, preparing files for press, liaising with the pressmen and pressproofing final artwork, both on island and at overseas presses.

The work was immensely varied with projects ranging from design of logos, corporate ID, annual reports, brochure design, tv ads, interactive projects, exhibition panels, signs/banners, POS, illustrations, photography, t-shirt design, handmade invites and special event projects, retail ads, charity design projects, newsletters and much more. As well as design projects I worked on our client advertising campaigns, both in retail and the business sector, producing adverts in both black and white and colour for the newspaper and various publications on island and worldwide.

artwork header
Over the past 10 years I have progressed into digital photography and computer generated artwork in addition to my design work and have regularly exhibited and sold work at the Bermuda Society of Arts since 1998.

November 2004, saw the opening of my First Solo Show in the Edinburgh Gallery, Bermuda, which was a great success, selling over 30 pictures. I was also part of 2 group shows, Six in the City, in 2003 and 2004 which featured work from 6 female artists.

I was awarded two honourable mentions in the 2005 Bermuda Aquarium and Zoo annual photography competition for my photographs 'Paradiso Glow' and '5 O'clock Shadow'. Preview magazine, Bermuda used my picture of ‘Here Lizard, Lizard’ as their front cover image in the February 2006 issue. In 2003 I won a local art competition with the prize of a Xerox colour printer. Also that year I won the annual Bermuda End to End t-shirt design competition. During 2004 and 2005,
I was selling my photographs at Harbour Nights (a weekly street event from May to October in Hamilton), various images of different sizes in clip frames placed on torn paper for effect. In 2004 a local reinsurance company bought a set of 3 of my large digital images for their board room and I have had several other commissions for my Bermuda photos and artwork. In 1997, whilst working at Harris & Mitchell (the company I was working for prior to AAC), I designed a set of postage stamps for Bermuda using computer generated artwork - the subject being the Bermuda Botanical Gardens marking their 100 years anniversary.

I also enjoy designing handmade wedding stationery and invites and have done some commission work on these.
