Web Design Artist & Twilight Super Hero Crime Fighter
O.K. maybe just the first part, but the Web Design aspect gets equal enthusiasm and pride in a job well done. I pride myself in being very down to earth and approachable so clients can ask questions if they need to. After all, there are no silly questions, so go ahead … ASK!!!

It hasn’t always been easy. There have been many difficult courses, countless all-nighters getting class projects done on time and monumental learning curves, but that deep seeded desire to design, build and create has kept me focused and driven to get to where I am today.
My Graphic Design career began in the usual way, designing graphics for smaller projects like Logos, Posters, Business Cards, even T Shirts and Coffee Mugs. But the desire to keep learning and keep building stayed with me and the portfolio grew and grew. Then one day, I tried my hand at Web Design and was insatiably hooked on it immediately! A lot of people I know don’t really get too excited about codes and scripts, but I do!
I started my Web Design career building the traditional HTML and XHTML Websites and in the last several years have incorporated WordPress into my Web Design portfolio. WordPress is a very powerful and effective tool for websites as we know them today.
Back in the day, websites didn’t really have to do much more than display your logo, some information about your company and contact information. But today’s internet demands that a website be so much more than that… oh how far we’ve come! Now there is so much more to consider “Will my website look good and be functional on a smart phone or ipad?” “Will I be able to accept payment and calculate shipping costs to sell my product online?” “Will I be able to make updates to my website myself on the fly when I need to?”
The answer is “Yes”, “Yes” and “My Goodness, Yes”! Responsive WordPress Websites can do all of that and more, I’m really just scratching the surface here. Even if you’re just browsing and have some questions you’d like to ask before you make a decision, by all means, give me a shout and ask away!
Please feel free to have a look at my Web Design Portfolio and see for yourself just how diverse my expertise is and just how fabulous your new website could be! Still don’t believe me? Here’s a tiny sampling of what just a few of my customers have to say…

While she may seem like just an ordinary kitty, she has an exceptional gift for making those around her laugh and smile. Who wouldn’t want a little more of that around??

” I have dealt with Candace on many projects in the past and although I know she has many customers she always seems to make me feel like I am her only customer. I can draw a simple sketch on a napkin and a few days later here is this amazing creation which is exactly what I had in mind when I told her my ideas. I highly recommend hiring Candace for your next project! ”

” I found Candace through a reference and after talking to her about a lot of issues I had with other website companies, and I found her to be a great help and she went out of her way to help me fix all the issues, even though she didn’t have to. Candace took over my Website and rebuilt it to what I have now, since then my company and sales grew by 100 percent!
She is very helpful and able to think outside the box to help my company to expand and grow, she is different from other companies, by not only building a website, but also caring and wanting to learn everything about me and my company to make sure to build the best and most efficient site for me.
I highly recommend Candace to anybody and found her to be very honest. I’m willing to give her a reference anytime! ”
