Describe your website.

My website is designed to inform people about my unique college advising services. My goal is to provide advice to students considering studying art in college, as I did not have a college advisor or parents who understood the unique advising needs artists need when I was in high school. The site content includes studying art in college; portfolio preparation; frequently asked questions about independent college advising; college advising and portfolio preparation services offered; college acceptances by my students; and my background and experience.

Who is the target audience for your website?

My target audience is parents of students in high school or in college that are considering the study of art, design, and animation/film or architecture in college. My site explains about the process of preparing a portfolio and shares examples of artwork my students created and that I photographed. It also shares several helpful links.

What is the advantage of your website over others?

I have a unique combination of experience as an artist who went through the process of preparing a portfolio and applying to colleges, both for my undergraduate and graduate degrees. My professional background includes college admissions, both in colleges of art and a university. I also instruct high school art.

Tell us a story about this website.

I have worked with students around the United States, as well as Europe, China, and currently India.

Why did you use this Sandvox design?

I regularly change the designs I use. Currently I'm using Simply for the combination of color and clean design.

What techniques did you use to build this website?

I was able to incorporate my logo into the header using code injection.
