Hi there! I’m Shannon, a child of God and a work at home mom of one teenage boy and one infant. I have been a Graphic Designer for many moons and consider it a passion and hobby as well as career. I got my start in print work and naturally gravitated into web work as well.
While I do a little of it all, my specialties are WordPress design/customizations and newspaper/magazine/book layouts. Helping the self-publishing author get their book ready for print always gives me a great feeling.
I love, love, LOVE helping people with all things graphic design.
My background in graphic design started as a sophomore in high school when a friend talked me into joining Yearbook with her. When I first started we were still creating and laying out pages using paste up and sending mechanicals to the yearbook publisher. The second year we got a couple of the then-new Apple Macintosh and had our first year of computerized page design using Aldus PageMaker version 3…or was it 2? Anyway, I was in love and hooked!
I have a diploma in Printing and Graphics Technology from Valdosta Technical Institute where I completed the course requirements early and graduated 6 months ahead of the rest of my class. I have over 15 years of experience in layout and graphic design. I offer freelance graphic design, desktop publishing, WordPress and some virtual assistant services.
Working for my local newspaper, and in the past for a print shop, I came home full time in April of 2007 to freelance.
In my free time, my son and I enjoy dining out, watching movies, camping, fishing, and just hanging out. After 11 years living in Utah, we currently call South Georgia home. As a natural spin off of graphic design, I was doing digital scrapbooking before it was cool. I dabble in a direct sales business involving that.

Good to meet you!
