Visual Artist; Photographer
The 1st step in my design career was to earn a degree in Apparel Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology. After 10 years as a fashion designer, I returned to school to earn a degree in Graphic Design which led to employment as a graphic designer. Much of my work involved producing technical drawings and recognizing the power of the computer to do this, I turned to AutoCAD software in its earliest days.
In 1984 I became both an authorized Autodesk reseller and Training Center with a focus on design visualization. My company, Configured Systems won the “Autodesk Superior Customer Service Award” based the high level of service and support that we provided to our clients in the New York/New Jersey/Pennsylvania areas.
Tempting offers to buy my business led to its sale in 1999 allowing me to return to my true loves, graphic design and photography. My work has been used in advertising, books, magazines, corporate brochures and recognized with numerous awards. It has given me the satisfaction of doing the work that I most love to do.
