"I'm a big fan of keeping things simple. It's the way I live and the way I work. It's a cliché , but I believe design is communication. It's not art. It's not just making things pretty. It's solving problems and conveying ideas. Making things pretty is the easy part."

"I love to 'show' with my words rather than 'tell'.  I'm a big picture gal who works within the details. Being a persnickety grammar nazi who's conscious of user experience (UX), search engine optimisation (SEO) and accessibility means I can make the connections between the words on your webpages and your web presence."
