Warm earth tones, and transparent nature images on a custom background make this site’s environment perfect for Bonnie Thompson’s clients. She received this feedback on her site: “I love the design of your page. It feels healing. It sounds like you have a lot to offer to HSPs, that cannot be found in mainstream.” Bonnie wrote to me that this feedback was: “Exactly the goal and it's been achieved. I wanted a site that felt healing and you created it.”
Pamela and I work together often on design projects for her marketing clients. For her own website design, it was very much a collaboration achieving this crisp, modern, yet warm business presence.
NY based Nonduality Institute states: “Our scientific research into the neural correlates of nondual realization contributes to the understanding of the nature of consciousness, and the brain’s functioning in optimal states of wellbeing.” This site is rich in substance, and the design was a pleasure to create--very much a showcase for the beautiful paintings by Mary DeVincentis.

With this customized WordPress site, Alan Strachan first asked me to hand-color the illustration (by David O'Donaghue). Taking elements from the banner, I continued the design into the site to create the dimensionality that Alan was looking for. This book (in progress) promises to be very thought-provoking.
I created the custom, rotating banners, and worked with Andrea of Ah Yes Creations to build her brand and web environment showcasing her wonderful organic skincare products she formulates on her farm in Canada.
