I create websites for individuals and small businesses who are looking for elegant and creatively designed sites that entice viewers in, have clear and easy navigation, and are search engine friendly giving them the greatest possibility of rising towards the top of free search engine lists. My background as a visual artist is value-added, not the norm in the sometimes cluttered world of website design. My priority, beyond the critical element of design, is to create well-built clean sites: all the background work and detailed coding that you won't see on the screen will make your website work the way you want it to, and impress your viewers as an individual reflection of you and your work.

Below are samples of several websites that I have both designed and built. In each case I have worked closely with the client to tailor a site to their individual needs, in order to reflect the personality of their work or service. For each of the examples below a link to the actual site is provided. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you are looking for an affordable, well designed and constructed website.
