Hi, I’m Maura.

I’m an artist, a writer and editor, and a website designer.

Whether editing or writing, I’ll find the right words to make your message sing.

Words & Pictures

I combine words and pictures on websites, signs, book covers and more.

I wear many hats, but my job is simple: to help you tell your story to the world.

My background in language and fine arts gives me a strong understanding of the two backbones of storytelling: words and pictures. I have a discerning eye for color and shape, as well as a love of finding just the right turn of phrase.

I have worked with many different types of communications, in a variety of industries. This diverse experience has made me versatile in my approach, with the ability to solve a range of design and communication challenges.
