I have been designing since the early 80's, after graduating from Drexel University in Philadelphia. Back then, computers were relatively new in the design community, but I was hooked on my mac. I concentrated mostly on environmental graphics (signage) and my sweetest job was designing the ride and directional signage for Hersheypark. I now am responsible for most of the photoDUDS designs and email graphics. I really love to paint rooms but found I needed an outlet that was a little more attainable, so I found ART JOURNALING.

hi card

This card was made by punching coordinating papers with the Fiscars small hexagon shaped punch. I positioned them on a scrap, then glued into position. I left a hexagon out to stamp “hi”.


I  hand cut feathers out of cardstock then used the same ink from the “hi” to add color to them. Dusted the edges with a pink stamp for extra dimension. Tied small glass beads to cotton cord and tied them to the card.


my summer journal

Got this GREAT large sized board book at the library for only 50¢. I have got to find more of these! No need to glue pages together and the book is 9×12 – fantastic size. It was a children’s story book written in German with these kinda creepy illustrations that I was happy to paint over. Here are some of the pages. The inside cover is layers of acrylic paint stamped with lots of my hand carved stamps.


I had hand cut these letters for a DUDS project and thought they FIT my Style. The squares were stamped on deli paper with ceramic tiles – a tip I learned from Jodi Ohl on 21 Secrets. I have been loving that workshop!
