Retouching
Biography

Through Image Transformation Services, I combine my technical and fine art backgrounds to bring imaging ideas to life.


I have twelve years retouching experience with a broad range of assignments where I am required to execute demanding, detailed work efficiently My strengths include high-end beauty and creative montage work. I have been gravitating toward working mostly with ad agencies and prepress facilities. I very much enjoy the creative and technical process of leaving my work fresh, polished and with emotional presence.

I initially moved to New York in March, 2004 to work on staff at Quad Graphics, where I met demanding retouching needs within a quick turnaround to many of the top magazines in the country.

During over 5 years at AARP's Modern Maturity magazine, I grew from my initial responsibilities including desktop scanning and shipping of artwork to take on retouching projects of increasing complexity. To support the creative efficiency of the Art Department, I implemented an accurate and fast color management system such that all forms of the Design Department's color output and display matches RR Donnelley's press proofs.

From 1999 thru 2003 I displayed my archival digital montage prints and original photographs at Touchstone Gallery in downtown Washington, DC. My solo shows included Allegheny Arts Council, Cumberland, Maryland during March, 2002 and Touchstone Gallery , Washington, DC during September, 2001.

I hold a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a BS in Marketing from George Mason University.
