As the owner and managing director of Rotundo Studios, North Port, FL, I provide illustration and graphic design services to businesses, both large and small, as well as institutions, non-profits, design studios and printers. Originating in Cleveland, Ohio, I have been in business since 1993. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Akron with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. After graduating, I honed my skills for over two years under the tutelage of Darby Scott, Owner/Director of Darby Scott Design, Mentor, Ohio. During that time, I formed Rotundo Studios and continued to build my own business clientele, several of whom remain loyal clients after moving my studio to North Port in early 2004.

I am a very versatile artist with experience that includes fine arts, illustration, logo/branding, brochures, correspondence packages, posters, games, books, packaging, t-shirts, magazine layout, ads, menus, newsletters, banners and directories. I am pre-press experienced, thoroughly reliable, and deadline sensitive.

As an artist, I am able to enhance the graphic design by blending my traditional skills of drawing, painting and design with industry standard technology. Because I prefer my illustrations to have an organic feel, I do them by hand, using different mediums such as pencil, ink, washes, watercolor, gouache, oils and acrylics. I then take the illustration to the computer for further refinement, the final output being a digital file. I am also skilled in the use of Illustrator and Photoshop in creating illustrations strictly on the computer as pure vector and/or digital files.
