My Story

Jackie is a graphic designer and photographer located in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. She provides superior design services to small businesses, breweries, and non-profits. She is also a photographer with a focus on newborn and family lifestyle photography. 

Hello! My name is Jackie and I am an artist. 

From the time I could hold a pencil I was fascinated with anything that could make a mark on paper. Growing up, my sketchbook was my escape. During my senior year of high school, my aunt encouraged me to talk to an Air Force recruiter. A year later in 2003 I decided to join.

Before I left for basic training I had been taking a medical course at the local community college and had my heart set on entering the medical field. Fortunately for me, I didn't get the job I wanted, instead the Air Force decided I was creative and sent me to school to become a graphic artist. After my 2nd enlistment was up I decided to pursue a career in freelance and to add to my skillset, went on to get my Bachelors degree in Illustration from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design. 

Currently my personal focus is on surface pattern design. I create art that makes me happy and then I make it available for licensing or for sale on any of the platforms in my "shop" links. 

My freelance focus is on designing and illustrating for artisan entrepreneurs who's products or services fall into the categories of small batch, craft, and or handmade. My current clients are a mix of craft breweries, boutiques, and ultra marathon race directors.
My favorite type of work is packaging and label design, but I also create logos, posters and other printables. 

If you are an artisan entrepreneur or a small event coordinator and need an artist like me, I'd love to hear from you!
