I Did It My Way

Kotlar Concepts Du Jour

Art is my background with a B.A. in studio art and graphic design, and an M.A. in fiber and textile design. Sketching, painting, screenprint.

Having worked in a Mad Men Ad World I became quite good at it – worked my way from freelance gigs to full-time art director and creative director in the NY/NJ metro area, garnering awards for print publication, radio, and television in NJ Advertising Land. Eventually, I became a Tech Chick, a transformation from analog precision to digital professional.

I write to bring me back to sanity from an often insane world. The second daughter to Ukrainian parents who escaped the atrocities of WWII, I am a first-generation American born rooted in a Slavic soul of Lemkivschyna and the Carpathian Mountains.
