Iíve always loved art class in school, starting waaaaaaay back with Mrs. Wasko in kindergarten. My mom said she always knew Iíd be an artist because when the other kids were drawing stick figures with eyes and mouths, I was drawing them with eyebrows, eye lashes and fingernails! I went to college and became a Medical Illustrator, but soon realized that it wasnít quite the right fit for me.
Eventually I went back to school to earn another degree in Graphic Design. I have been a designer for over 16 years, working on numerous projects for clients, including several Fortune 500 companies. Recently, I started designing invitations in my spare time for Paperstyle and find it to be a lot of fun. I see inspiration all around and love to play with color and typography.
In May 2009, I married my favorite guy, Keith, at my favorite place, the beach. We have two kids, of the canine kind, Lucie and Dixie, hence the name, Lixie Designs.
