Services Available On-Line

For the on-line stores, I design Illustrations and patterns which are printed on various products. I sell the artwork through companies that provide the products, the printing, and the delivery of the finished piece.  My product is the artwork - in the form of an and electronic file - which is provided to these companies so that they can print it on the items they sell.
