Pixel Nelson is a small woman-owned and operated design business, primarily graphic.

“I named the business after my pup, but if you are reading this you probably want to know more about me…

All my life I’ve been studying and practicing effective communication with words and imagery using different tools from photography and paint to various textiles and digital pixels.  Visual impressions are generally the first to be made and it is a fact that a picture can speak a thousand words or even more.  Turning ideas into images is a process which I like to log in my blog and usually I start with hand made sketches.

My education and experience come from a myriad of places and so do my clients. I have a BA from the University of Maryland, College Park, with a double major in Art History and Studio Art as well as a minor in Business and Marketing and an MA in Publication Design from the University of Baltimore. I am currently matriculating as an MFA student at Academy of Art University in Interior Architecture and Design, as well.  Over the years I have continued to work  for myself and others – all while educating myself in the fields of art/photography, interior design, graphic design, and TV/Film. I wrote promotional advertising pieces for Coastal Living Magazine for 8 years as well as some published advertorials for the magazine.  I have been certified by several business including Google Inc.(innerspace photography), Ethan Allen Inc. (interior design)  and J.Hilburn Inc.(personal styling) and I am a 20 – year member of the Screen Actors Guild / American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.
