I often describe myself as an artist who is good friends with math. These two things together = my love of building websites from scratch. I have been consistently involved with website design and development for many years. In the process, I have become highly accomplished in writing CSS, HTML, and media queries, as well as with project management. I currently work in CSS Grid Layout, which is considered to be the way forward in website development.
Along with the design and front-end development of whole sites, I offer anything UI or UX, website analysis, reorganization, updating, web graphics, color palettes, designs, and layouts; in any combination, or in part. I work equally well on my own or as part of a team.
I am part of The Inside-Out Center team as their web and graphic designer. Pictured here is the recently created interim mini-site, designed to highlight the training program. The current full Inside-Out site is now in the re-design stage, and will be live sometime in early 2021.
A site with a technical sensibility, for a client based in Silicon Valley. The ACAVS site is a fully-responsive website, created in the CSS Grid Layout method.
A new site, recently developed for the people at ACAVS. Much of the branding is the same between the two sites, so that they would feel to be part of the same company, yet still be their own distinct entity.
The Doors32 Support site is a fully-responsive website, created in the CSS Grid Layout method.
This website was designed and developed for a public relations client, who adores the various metaphors that trees represent. I wanted to give her a site that was both professional and poetic, as well as functional and easy-to-navigate, so that her clientele would have a good experience in discovering all that she has to offer in her business.
The ImPRessions site is a fully-responsive website created in Bootstrap 3.
The AnimaliA website was created for a holistic veterinarian who needed an online presence that was both serious, to represent her practice, and playful, to reflect the beloved pets that she cares for. She also requested the color scheme of turquoise, purple, and aqua... With a tiniest bit of red for good business feng shui.
The AnimaliA site was created in CSS Grid Layout and is a fully-responsive website.
This is the site for Painted Jay Publishing LLC, my own self-publishing company. It exists as an informational site only, as my books and ebooks sell in online venues such as Amazon, and I keep no inventory.
This site was redesigned and developed from scratch in 2018 in CSS Grid Layout, and is fully responsive. Check out the Mondrian-like layouts on some of the pages. This can only happen in Grid. Fun!
This site was launched in February, 2019. Created in the CSS Grid Layout method, it is hand-coded from scratch with an original design, and is fully responsive.
Not typical of most artist sites, this one tells stories, and has an 'evolution' section via the archives (the non-responsive previous site, still rich with content), presenting the growth and changes that an artist naturally takes over the years.
This is a responsive website, created in Bootstrap 3, based on an earlier design from a fixed-width centering site.
This was my first self-taught responsive site, working with Adobe Dreamweaver CC before Bootstrap was included. I learned much about how responsive sites work in the process of developing this site. Bright Pink Smile, by the way, is my sorely neglected artist blog. However, there is much good writing in the archives on the topic of being an artist.
