In addition to web development, she has additional skills in graphic design and professional writing. She finds both these skills are essential when designing websites.
In a previous career, Twila was an academic librarian. She is also a professional writer who has published a work of fiction. She finds it very fulfilling to take an idea from concept to reality, whether that is a website, a novel, or a painting. In her free time, she loves to paint and do ink drawings (mostly stippling). She has an eclectic taste in music that ranges from Paul Simon to Twenty One Pilots. And, her favorite pastime is hanging with her husband, who keeps her constantly laughing and singing (in a very off-key voice).
As a web developer for 15 years, Twila has extensive experience as a designer. Her design style includes clean, modern designs with strong use of white space. She loves subtle artistic details that help bring her client's visions to life. She believes strongly that design should enhance not compete with website content.
