Born in Washington, D.C., I am the seventh of eight kids, and was introduced to printing at a young age, working at my father's printing and direct mail business. My career in printing and graphics officially began in 1976 as a proofreader and paste-up artist for a small printing company. Over the years I became proficient in phototypesetting, layout, graphic design and prepress after working for private business and government contractors.
In 1986 I started Curry Graphics and Typesetting, setting up shop in my basement – complete with darkroom, various office and typesetting equipment, and my two young children playing under the light table. A few years later I leaped into desktop publishing and combined traditional composition with digital design.
As the printing business was evolving from film and plate in the 90s, so was typesetting and layout and I ventured out to work for others. The professional experiences and challenges were invaluable, but after ten years it was time to relaunch Curry Graphics. Since 2004 my client list has grown and expanded to include a wide range of corporations and non-profits such as ACLU of the Nation's Capital, American Psychiatric Association, Bryn Mawr College, Coakley Williams Hotel Management Company, National Alliance for Black School Educators, University of Maryland College Park, and more.
I am proud of the path my career has taken, and in this ever-changing business, there is always more to learn.
Personally, I am grateful for my loving family. My husband and I have been married for 35 years and
have two wonderful children. For more information, please download my resume.
