DESIGN & COPY
Creating compelling design and copy that elicits emotion, generates interest, and in the best cases,
transcends convention, is always a challenge and always worth the effort it takes to get there.

During my tenure as the marketing director for the University of Arizona Museum of Art,
I wrote and designed invitations, gallery guides, event collateral, member magazines,
and display advertising. The following pieces are invitations for exhibitions that reflect a
diversity of artists, from the etching suites of Francisco Goya, to the massive wall
tapestries of contemporary African artist, El Anatsui.

Design, copy writing
Creative Machines creates and fabricates large-scale public art installations
as well as interactive science museum exhibitions. In order to increase their public art

The piece was sent to a targeted group of art consultants who work with corporate
clients and city arts committees.

The Mini-Time Machine Museum of Miniatures is a museum in Tucson that exhibits

event materials, and an annual report for this family-friendly museum.

for family crisis services.
