My son and I at the Museum of Contemporary Art MAC in Niteroi, Brazil designed by the famous Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.

Hi, I'm Mona Lisa.

My real name IS Mona Lisa. My parents loved the name and actually how ironic is it that art, style, culture and design are so much a part of my life.

I've been a self-employed and freelance graphic designer for more than 20 years. I've worked at some top Nashville agencies and have worked with my own top-notch clients in more fields than I can list. View my portfolio >

What I've learned through the years is that being an experienced graphic designer isn't just about creating pretty pictures, it's about understanding your client's mission, ideal client, competition, brand values, marketing objectives and desire to have an end result they are proud of. Good design finds the balance between aesthetics and function and that's what I do and what I can teach you to do as well. My job is to, not only make you look good, but to also help you with your marketing strategy set up.

And yes, I am Mona Lisa — not the work of art but a graphic designer, Squarespace authorized trainer, branding and design coach, mom, friend, sister, half American, half Brazilian, traveler, optimist, serial entrepreneur, a Seinfeld fan and yada, yada, yada.


Does your brand look like you designed it or a professional? No tech skills. No design skills. No problem.

Want to see how I can help you with your brand visuals and marketing materials? Schedule a complimentary call and let's start the conversation.


I design. You design. We design.

You want your branding visuals like your logo, social media graphics and website to look amazing. You're either at a place where you want to hire a professional designer or you have no other choice but to do it yourself. Either way, your visuals reflect your brand and ultimately no matter who the designer is, it needs to be professional, cohesive, functional and beautiful. I work with creative entrepreneurs who are ready to invest in good professional design whether I am designing for you or teaching you how to design the result is the same.
