I love what I do, and that's helping people like you make an impact through human-centered design.


I'm Allison.

I studied creative advertising at Michigan State University and currently work as a Freelance Artist with Upwork. I have a good sense of humor and love using design for positive change. I'm a curious creator and love working alongside a diverse team, challenging myself and others to do better. 

After hours? You can find me with a glass of wine and my iPad, creating illustrations for my insttgram following and my larger coloring book project. Art is my passion, and it deeply inspires my day-to-day designing.

Kind words from my talented colleagues:

"Allison is intelligent, very competent with many marketing software packages and produced many different products from door clings, vinyl posters, magazine ads, flyers, and Facebook posts. Her material has great content, clever wording, and was visually beautiful. Allison is reliable, punctual, communicates ideas well and works great with others."
