I'm an artist first and foremost, but created my first website in 1997, and in February 2008 my "day job" became creating and maintaining websites and WordPress blogs, mainly for artists. I teach workshops on blogging, social networking and Photoshop for artists, and I'm available for online marketing strategy consultations for a more effective online presence.

I created the Southern Oregon Artists Resource in Jan 2010 to help promote the arts community of Southern Oregon with a directory of artists, galleries and more art-related businesses and calendar of art events, classes and workshops. Our companion blog, Art Matters!, is where we publish press releases, new works, calls to artists, gallery exhibits, art education opportunities and art world news ~ visited by art enthusiasts and artists from here and around the world!
There's so much information that comes in on syndicated posts about why art really does matter that my blog has made an art advocate out of me, and if you go for a visit and spend a little time exploring, you might learn something that changes the way you see it, too.

It’s so hard to keep this site updated when there are so many interesting (and challenging!) projects to tend to, so here’s a quick recap of a few of the things I’ve been working on. Just after I finished the restoration of a site for Medford artist Boni de Laire, she referred another wonderful [...]
Having trouble preparing images of your art for submission to art shows & print media? Artist Norm Rossignol told me about some challenges he’d been having, and after we got that all worked out, he suggested that I offer another workshop as there are still many artists in the Rogue Valley having problems editing their [...]

That’s where I found this very informative and encouraging article…and a whole lot more! What makes this prolific artist such a sales superstar? Guest blogger Natasha Wescoat shares [...]
Note: I just started working with Judy Elliott of Dragonfly Designs West to take over the maintenance on her existing website, an exciting development that follows a year of getting to know her. I’m posting an edited version of the article we submitted to the Jacksonville Review to promote her current show at the GoodBean [...]
I’m so grateful to have had artist Christina Madden come to me for help bringing more visitors to her website! The first thing we did was to add metadata to all the images of her art, both for security’s sake and to help promote her art. While the metadata contained within an image is not [...]
I am delighted to have finished a website for Norm Rossignol at www.normrossignolart.com!
