Welcome to VAD Creative, a full service design house offering logo design, web design, photography and even art and antique appraisal.
A Jack of All Trades
I have always had a love of all things art and design. I grew up in a small town that didn’t have much to offer when it came to classes in art and music. My small Catholic school even cut the art program for a few years, but my parents searched and searched, and somehow found people to teach me music, painting, drawing and sculpture.
Their hard work paid off, because when it came time for me to choose a college, I settled on Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, one of the best art and design schools in the country. It was a culture shock, to say the least. Everything was strange and different, from the students, to the way of life, and even the food. I quickly grew to love the school and especially New York City. I decided to major in graphic design but took electives in photography, art history, painting, printmaking and writing. I loved it all and to this day, I still have a hard time choosing one passion.
I’ve worked in print design creating logos, brochures, fliers, invitations and tee shirts, as well as in broadcast doing still and animated graphics. When I felt that my passion for design was waning, I went back to school get my certificate in art appraisal and added general art and antique appraiser to my list of talents.
