I have been drawing and creating my own graphics for over 35 years and because of this I can offer personalized and custom graphics to suit your needs. Many modifications are possible (size, colour, look) or I can create something entirely new.
I work with rasters (a rectangular grid) in Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop and MSPaint which means I am able to edit the colour values of each individual pixel (like a colour mosaic) which gives me more control over the fine details and overall look of the finished graphic.
I believe I can help you with your needs and may have ideas that you are looking for. If you hire me for a job I am sure you won't be disappointed with the end results. I will work with you to bring ideas into a visual product you can use.
Graphics for logos & buttons, silhouettes, flyers/brochures, greeting & business cards, web sites and for children's books among other things.
I am quite knowledgeable with computers and able to use a number of software programs as well as computer related hardware. I have and maintain my own website (among others) and have received many Web Site Awards for it. I have many years experience as a typist and have a number of other business related skills. My list of skills include (but are not limited to) Paint Shop Pro, MSPaint, Photoshop, General Office Skills, Microsoft Word, Web Design, Brochure Design, Business Card Design, and Model Sheet Design. Currently I am taking more courses in Photoshop to upgrade my skills in it.
Although I am focusing more on my graphics, I also build, design and maintain web sites. No site is too big or small whether it be 1 page or 100. Intuit site builder is the one I use the most and I'm familiar with both the regular and Lite versions. I have also built web sites with Microsoft Office and uploaded the finished pages. I have built sites on a few other locations. I can edit some HTML codes.
I am told I have excellent communication and interpersonal skills. I am quite resourceful in solving problems. I am honest, reliable, friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic. I am able to adapt to most situations quickly while completing tasks. I have had years of experience offering customer service and I have a strong focus on achieving high levels of customer satisfaction. I am willing to learn and quickly able to follow instructions. I am able to work calmly under pressure and effectively meet deadlines. I work well alone or as a team player.
