About the Artist :: Catherine Akens Zeederberg

Hi there, I'm an independent web/graphics/sketch artist currently working as a freelance web designer. While originally from Ohio, I grew up in Puerto Rico, North Carolina, and eventually the NW Suburbs of Chicago. I've recently returned to Eastern North Carolina, continuing work on various projects ranging from web development to portraiture to a newfound love of pyrography.

When I'm not working, I'm drawing. When I'm not drawing, I'm reading (Neil Gaiman/blogs/news). When I'm not reading, I'm learning to cook. Happy to report that my days of burning Pop-Tarts in the toaster are over.

Notes: Projects found here range from simple sketches to month-long developments. Want to know more? Connect with me on many of the bajillion networks circling the online socialsphere:

Web Design/Graphic Artist Freelancer Available I am currently accepting commissions for new art & design projects. Get in touch or learn more below.

Commissions, Freelancing, and Consulting information

Web designer by day, artist by trade, and supernerd by night. 

Having worked 8+ years as a full-time web & graphics designer/front-end web developer on over 100+ websites, I've acquired and honed my skills in successfully taking a web project from concept to completion.  I love finding solutions that work for the customer and finding new, innovative ways of bringing a client's vision to life. 

My primary service features creating custom, intelligent designs in Photoshop and having the knowledge and tools to implement those designs across a variety of platforms (Wordpress, Joomla, CMS Made Simple, Magento, HTML, PHP). What does this mean for you? Unlike so many stock themes and cookie-cutter layouts that simply switch out a logo or tweak the color schemes, your unique design will be built from scratch. No one else in the world will have your 100% original design. 

I also provide a number of traditional and digital art solutions including Graphic Design, Photo Editing/Retouching, Image Manipulation, original Illustrations, Custom Portraiture, and more.
