In need of a whimsical fun illustration for your project? Magazine illustration, ads, cover art, brochure, web graphics/artwork, etc. Well, I’m happy to help! Tell me your needs for you next creative project.
quotePlease Note: If you are an author seeking publication of a story you have written. Though I am very flattered that you are interested in my work, the publisher will usually want to choose their own illustrator after they have purchased your manuscript. For self-published authors who want to publish a book for their children or to sell: Unfortunately I will have to decline. I have experienced self-publishing and the experience didn’t work for me. A lot of time, effort and emotion goes into concept of sketches to final artwork. Some self-publishers are simply not prepared to pay what a professional illustrator require to complete a full book.

Have you always wanted to have professional website for your business or personal use? Don’t know the ends and outs of setting up a website? Or, where to start in setting up a WordPress Website and installing that perfect WordPress Theme? Well, I’m here to help get your business to the web!
WP Website setup & implementation includes:
Web Hosting & Domain Registration Setup:
Getting Your Website ‘Live’
- Each website on the world wide web must have a domain name and a hosting service. Your hosting is the place where your website files are stored. The hosting is the place where your website name is registered.
quoteIf these services are not in place, I can arrange them for you. Securing the domain name and hosting account requires approximately 1 hour of development time. In addition, you should expect to pay approximately $5-10 per month for the combined cost of your web hosting and domain name. Perhaps you already have your hosting account in place. In that case, I will require FTP access to your site. That information includes: FTP Host Address, Directory (if applicable), Login Name, and Password. If you have a domain name/url already registered, but not have a hosting plan, I will need to access the domain account so that I can update the DNS settings. (The DNS info is what allows the domain and the host ‘talk’ to eachother if they do not reside in the same place).
WordPress and Database Setup: This is the initial installation of WP and Database for WP website. It is best to have the latest verison of Mysql and PHP to get the most functions and features for WordPress.
WP Theme Design: I can help select 2 – 3 WP theme Options that would work best with your company. Based on the details of your company needs.
WP theme install: This includes theme customization, installing necessary plug-ins and adding all website content.
Search Engine Optimization: (SEO, submitting your website to various search engines)
Google Analytics: Google Analytics are added to your site so that you can review data/statistics about your site visitors, such as geographic location, length of time on site, which pages are visited, keywords that led to site visit, etc)
Registration with Google: Your website, business, and site map are all registered with Google, which also increases your search engine results.
WP Guidance: Guidance on how to use the WP admin, familiarizing you on basic functions to update content yourself. Or, if you prefer I also offer a Website Updates services.
…starting at $480.
quoteThis estimate is based on averages of similar projects. Please note because each WP theme is different. The amount of time to setup a theme varies and the price may vary slightly.
about website updates:
I am proud to provide excellent customer service for maintaing your website. Should you need minor web updates (text and or images added or replaced), I will update your website within one week of your request. Regular web updates are generally scheduled in the beginning of the workweek, so by providing update information by 9:00 AM on a Monday morning, you can feel assured that the update will be completed quickly. Updates requiring more attention will be added to the schedule in the next available opening. I do not charge a monthly administrative fee for this service. Instead, the standard hourly rate (of $20 per hour) applies to web updates. Minor web updates average about 15 minutes per update.
Estimated timeline from start date: 3 – 5 business days
