Brief Summary
Karen Snave- Illustrator and Graphic Designer

I have been illustrating and designing professionally since 1984.
I studied Fine Art at the Chelsea School of Art in London
and graduated from the American Academy of Art in Chicago with a
degree in Fine Art. I excel in both traditional and
digital art, and am proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator and Flash.
I am easy to work with, understand what a deadline means
and, most importantly, love what I do.

I have illustrated for a number of publishers,
ad agencies, gift-ware manufacturers, game developers,
corporations both large and small, and am able to adapt
my style to suit the needs of my clients. Highly experienced
with branded products, I have the ability to retain the
integrity of license yet create inspired new directions.

Great design can communicate your message,
get you noticed and bring in new business.
I listen to my clients and translate their goals
into strong design and imagery and make magic happen!
