Work experience


Jul, 2015 — Present

With a very prolific and highly successful career as a creator of beautiful and engaging greeting cards, impactful design, and inspiring art, we moved back to the awe-inspiring land of my birth in Utah to be closer to our aging mothers, where I continue to be very busy with wonderful contracted work with various clients.

Hallmark Cards

Jan, 1984 — Jul, 2015 (over 31 years)

As a Master Illustrator/Designer at Hallmark, I've had the opportunity to illustrate and design literally thousands of social expression products and to help lead and influence Hallmark's teams and processes. In turn, I've been touched and inspired by a broad and robust spectrum of talented writers, designers, editors, illustrators, art directors, photographers, and calligraphers - creative thinkers and producers at every level!


Jul, 1981 — Jan, 1984 (over 2 years)

Following my graduation from the Art Center College of Design, I worked as a freelance illustrator and animation artist in the entertainment, illustration, design, and animation industries in California and Utah.

Art Center College of Design

Jan, 1979 — Jul, 1982 (over 3 years)

As a full-tuition scholarship recipient at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, I was asked to teach classes during the last several semesters of my schooling and into the next year.
