Hi, I’m Vivian.
I’ve been working as a graphic and web designer for over 20 years, and making art since I was old enough to hold a crayon.
I hold a BFA in Experimental Studio Art from Syracuse University and a Graphic Design Certificate from Clark University.
After college I worked as a bookstore manager in Boston while continuing to study performance art, children’s book illustration, and improv.
In the mid-1990’s, when the internet was in its its infancy, a friend’s fiancé told me about his job as a “web designer” and I was fascinated. A few months later I quit my bookstore job, enrolled in graphic design classes, and accepted an unpaid internship at an interactive startup. I never looked back.
Today I live in Rockville, MD with my husband, teenage son, and the world’s most docile cats, Chickpea and Nemo.
