*Please Note: I have retired from website design so that I may devote my full time to painting.   😀  Here is a brief history of my life as a website designer.

Website Design

Designing websites for artists

My Web Design Background

I began designing for the web in 1994, and over the years I created many dozens of websites, using the standard technology at the time.   My designs included a number of large websites for organizations, including several large artists’ organizations, and quite a few websites for individual artists, musicians, and small businesses.

Artist Websites:
