Web Design.

I am personally involved in each Client's site research and site development.

The most important part of the process is listening to our Clients and understanding their business.  Our job is to create a unique, masterful, functional site that tells their story the way they want the world to see it.  

 

Most of our Clients are doing this for the first time or need help with re-creating a new site - so we make it easy for them.  We perform all the research & content gathering, planning & design, and project management & implementation.  And the best part is that they receive a custom site for an affordable price.  We are a small shop that is nimble, reactive and timely.   

 

Abstract Art - original paintings and digital prints.

I consider my acrylic paintings to be abstract organic surrealism.  My digital art is also abstract - sometimes geometric, sometimes organic.  With each creation, my intention is to evoke emotion & mystery within the viewer.  I can create small and large original canvases for clients, and my digital art can be reproduced in any standard size.

 

My Heritage.

As long as I remember, my family has always had a love affair with the arts, and I followed their talented paths with passion and intrigue. 

 

~My grandfather William was an oil painter at heart - but a freehand sign painter out of necessity.

~My grandmother Beatrice Rose was a concert pianist - the Chicago College of Music named a hall after her.

~My mom Jeanette is an interior designer and crafts painter. 

~My Uncle Bill was an oil painter. 

~My sister Debbie was a renowned painter, jewelry designer and theater stage designer. 

~My sister Julie is a up-cycling nature artist, writer, and poet.

~My sister Sue is a poet.

~My sister Janel is a pet portrait painter.

~My nieces Hannah and Linda are paint, pencil and charcoal artists.

~My best friend Lydia (truly my 5th sister) is a designer and copywriter.

 

Famous artists who continue to influence me are Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali, Edward Hopper, Georgia O'KeefeJack Vettriano and ZZ Wei.  They all inspire me with a passion for art. 

 

Born in Chicago and raised in northern New Jersey, I relocated to the Southwestern U.S. with my husband to immerse myself in the lifestyle of the tranquil high desert. My work is found in Arizona, Colorado, New Jersey, New York, and Italy - for people who share a connection with bold & colorful shapes, stories, and emotions. 

 

I hope my art and design honors my family's legacy of inspiring others.  - Carol
