I started my career as a graduate of Lebanon County Career & Technology Center, in Mass Media Productions with a Major in Television Production. I spent a year as an intern at Lebanon's own WLYH in Mount Gretna, editing for the news team & running cameras during the programs. This started my path and creative career. After moving to Lancaster County, I continuing to film both still and video Weddings & Commercial events. I then took the opportunity to work in the Prepress dept. for one of the nations largest printing companies. Working from the bottom on up - retouching type, stripping and plotting film, along with taking online classes at night in Graphic Design from the Art Institute, I moved into desktop design (in 2000), and even a shift lead in the Magazine Desktop area, all the while continuing to use my home based studio to build skill sets and grow into the diverse & creative designer & artist you see today. In 2004, we decided to dive into the website game, creating an online store for our family. With little web knowledge, I quickly learned how to code; HTML; PHP & CSS files to build beautiful websites. Over the years of constantly fine tuning our online store, and building websites for small businesses, as technology changed, so does a designers creativity & skill sets. Along with continuing education from Penn State and H.A.C.C, building websites is now as comfortable as creating a logo or doing a photoshoot. With the love & support of my wonderful husband of almost 25years, and my creative mindset, I hope to continue on my path for many more years to come. That same loving husband has been by my side all these years, and helps out with projects, printing and studio work. So, in a way, we have two talented artists that work in harmony together. I hope to soon add his story to this section, he is busy now running the online store I built (several times over) from that original idea in 2004.

I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this seller. I worked with them in 2016 for a custom design (magazine cover) for my daughter's 13th birthday and came back to them again 4 years later for another custom design (magazine cover) for my son. Natasha remembered me and still had all of my information from my previous order. The communication and customer service was stellar and the product quality outstanding. They have not seen the last of me and I would highly recommend.

Natasha designed and printed 200+ custom bookmarks to be used as favors at our church Christmas Party. She was a pleasure to work with. She took so much time to make sure the design was just the way I wanted it and even took extra special care to try and match the colors exactly to our logo color. The end result was a perfect match and a bookmark that everyone loved! She was willing to work through the Thanksgiving Holiday to get the job done and out to me in time. I received it early, with more bookmarks then I ordered and a personalized note pad (that will be my favor next year!) I couldn't be happier with the service provided by Natasha and her company. She was a delight to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone needing graphic/printing services.
