Hi, I’m Heather!

I’m an award-winning Creative Director and Graphic Designer with nearly 20 years of experience in multiple facets of design, publishing, and marketing.

If you take a peek at the photos this page, you’ll see that I’ve always been a maker, whether it was construction paper valentines in 3rd grade, or watercolor paintings of campus trees in college.

My drive to create isn’t a mystery, considering my dad was once an art teacher, my mom a painter, my grandmother a commercial artist. While my background is also in fine art, I began using computers to design from an early age, always going “beyond the assignment” (as my teachers would say) to design papers and reports in high school. After earning a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Evansville, I designed for a prominent advertising agency for 10 years, and have served as Art/Creative Director for Tucker Publishing Group since 2009, producing two bimonthly magazines, annuals, and custom design projects. My skills are as broad as my taste in music, because I also write, edit, proofread, shoot photography, manage our social media presence, and much more.

For a full professional history with additional details, head on over to my LinkedIn page. To take a peek at my work, I encourage you to view my online portfolio, which showcases some recent designs.

When I’m not pushing pixels or pencils, you might find me cuddling with my four cats, collecting vintage goods, eating pizza, or treasure hunting on a beach somewhere. Follow me on Instagram to see what I’ve been up to lately!
