Originally from Rochester, NY, I am a professional artist/designer based in Columbia, SC.

Fine Art Roots
I graduated from the State University of New York with a BA degree and relocated to Columbia to earn my Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of South Carolina. There I taught drawing, printmaking and graphic design courses for several years, plus art history classes at Newberry College.

Commercial Roots
Not long after completing my MFA, I became interested in commercial art. I took a job as an artist at a small advertising agency where I learned the trade. Later I joined the graphics department at a large software company to further develop my skills as a graphic designer. Eventually I left that position to accompany my husband on a six-month trip around the world while he was on a teaching sabbatical from the University of South Carolina. We visited 18 countries, although most of our time was spent in the Far East. Upon our return, I was ready to establish my own company. I went into business as a freelance graphic designer.

Digital Roots
Six years later I was introduced to my first personal computer — a Mac Plus. It was "love at first byte." The year was 1988. That little computer became my pivotal studio tool. Profits doubled that first year and I loved every minute of it. In 1996, I discovered the power of the Internet and taught myself HTML. (Code editors like we have today were nonexistant at the time.) I began building web sites. Two years later I changed my company's name (Adcon, Inc.) to Ginnie.com, Inc., to reflect my professional focus. Clients have included BMW, NationsBank, BlueCross BlueShield of SC, PBS, BellSouth, USC School of Medicine and others.

Digital Art
Over the past decade I've specialized in creating complex photomontage images for both print- and web-based commercial clients. I've also developed a keen interest in photography and digital printmaking which I have been actively pursuing for several years.

Recent breakthroughs in digital print technology have enabled artists and photographers such as myself to achieve outstanding print quality with maximum archival longevity (100+ years) right in our own studios. For me, that's a dream come true.

Fine Art Prints
The photographic prints on this web site represent a joyous return to my "fine art" roots. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I've enjoyed creating them.
