Growing up in Brooklyn, New York, I recall being fascinated with logos, posters, good design. I was obsessed with the 1962 card game Mille Bornes, designed by Joseph Le Callennec. My favorite, the out of gas.
I became an elementary school teacher, special education, at 21 years old. I quit in two months, became a receptionist. Fast forward to two decades of administration, architecture mostly, while learning photography, illustration, and graphic design. I started with photography; the good eye runs in the family. My prints have been shown in the Ouchi Gallery in Brooklyn, New York, and the theatre section of Time Out New York magazine. My Instagram is temporary.light. Mostly travel, architecture, nature, & still life images. I make simple photographs on a Fujifilm.
When I got my first iPad, I downloaded a drawing app. I loved being creative in a new way. Ten years later, I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. A graphic designer. Seriously, grids get me excited. That's how I knew.
And with that feeling, we can teach ourselves anything. I chose graphic design because of its flexibility. I like to strip away the distractions and, as my mom used to say, "Make it nice." Some things I like are Bauhaus, Swiss Style, Julius Klinger and Cosl-Frey.
My designs showcase the message. Get the point, with penny crazy.
