The visual arts have always been a part of Willow's life, from growing up as a magazine publisher's daughter, through college as an art major, and for the breadth of her extensive experience in publishing and marketing. There's almost no form of art technique that has escaped her inquisitive mind and hands, such as:

  • Advertising and business branding
  • Magazine page design and layout
  • Photography
  • Photoshop and other graphics software
  • Rapidograph and other technical pens
  • Watercolor pencils
  • Assorted types of pencils, pens and markers
  • Acrylic paints
  • Mixed media
  • Fabric, fiber, and paper arts
  • Jewelry design and creation
  • Native, primitive, ethnic, and historic methods and materials

Below is a small sampler of different types of projects and techniques:


  Rack card (front and back) for The Groveland Hotel. The owner loved the design so much that it became the new graphics style for the hotel's web site and all of its subsequent advertising.

Cover for the novel Triune, designed to be eye-catching even at the small sizes on web stores and on mobile devices.

Poster for the event Vintage Day. The colors, fonts, and background ray motif all evoke design elements from the period of the event, the 1930s.

Two-page spread layout for the Almanac, a regular department feature of Veggie Life magazine.

Poster for the Winter Magic dinner theater entertainment series at The Groveland Hotel.

Colored pencil study of an apple twig, showing fruit-producing growth spurs. For Veggie Life magazine.
