About

Hello! My name is Geri and I like to make things. I graduated from The Art Academy of Cincinnati in 2005 with a BFA in Communication Arts. Since then I have worked as a full time graphic designer/art director and as a freelance designer and illustrator. I have also continued to paint and have had a series of art exhibitions. I love design, I love to illustrate. Let's do something together!

Thanks for looking!
