Hi! I'm Karen.
I've been passionate about Graphic Design for more than 10 years.
The obsession started when I purchased Adobe Photoshop Express, then set out to learn how to use it. I had been thinking about creating my own advertisements for dog events, improving my digital photos, learning to remove objects and change backgrounds, and to create things for friends and family. This progressed into learning whatever I could online for several years, but I wanted more.
A few years ago, I took an 'introductory course' for Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign at Red Deer College. That stoked my appetite for more knowledge, and showed me how much I still had to learn.
In January of 2021 I decided to do something constructive during the pandemic, and to pursue a Graphic Design Diploma through accelerated online learning with CDI College. My Diploma was achieved in only 10 months - with first class honours, and a 99.2% grade point average!
Through freelancing, being a proud member of the Design Teams for The Doberman Network magazine, the Poodle Network magazine, The Vintage Beer Shirt Club, and the Sylvan Lake Hockey Camp, as well as creating projects for myself, friends and family, I've been given the amazing opportunities to advance my skills and knowledge, all while expanding my Portfolio.
I look forward to designing something fantastic with you too. Please reach out via my contact page with any questions you may have, or to discuss how I can help you with your project.
Let's design something fabulous!
