What brought you to Fanshawe?
I was looking for design training after finishing 2 years at BealArt. I already had Graphic Design as my major so I decided to go through the Industrial Design program as sculpture class was another favourite of mine at BealArt.
Tell us about your favourite Fanshawe experience.
There are many. The most memorable are the times we spent in the design studio. We all really got to know each other very well. I was proud to be one of only 3 female graduates from the program.
What impact has Fanshawe had on your life?
One of my teachers saw my work ethic and when a position opened for a digital designer for a venture capital software development company, he highly referred me and I did get the job. I created the original Photoshop, Illustrator and Graphic Design Electronically programs and taught them all. I eventually taught at the day school and spent my last 2 years teaching portfolio design at the Urban Design program.
What are you up to now?
I have been an artist for 20 years and have kept up with my graphic and web design abilities. I have a home studio and have commissioned work. I am also a gallery assistant at the St Marys Station Gallery (for the past 4 years). I helped the gallery with their online presence and am the sponsorship director there.
