As the owner and managing director of Rotundo Studios, North Port, FL, I provide illustration, graphic design and web 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 over thirteen years ago.

I am a very versatile artist, illustrator and designer with experience that includes fine arts, illustration, branding, web design, logo development, posters, games, books, packaging, brochures, correspondence packages, calendars, t-shirts, magazine layout and pagination, ads, menus, newsletters, cd/dvd covers, post cards, banners and directories. I am pre-press experienced, thoroughly reliable, and deadline sensitive.

As an artist/illustrator, I am able to enhance the graphic and web design by blending my traditional skills of drawing, painting and design with industry standard technology. Because I prefer my illustrations to achieve an organic look and style, I do them by hand, using 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 digital files.
