About Me

I am Cheryl Feyen and can bring 15+ years of experience in Cheryl Feyen
Project Management and Web Design to your project.

I have my A.S. in Web Design and Multi-Media from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh and all of the course work towards an A.S. in Business Adminiastration from Joliet Junior College..

You can see samples of my class work scattered throughout my portfolio.

My personal style is simple, easy to use websites with clean lines and touches of visual interest. Sometimes I like to add a touch of whimsy as illustrated by the puzzle pieces background on this website.

I feel that the most important goal for a website is useablilty, one that is easy to navigate and easy to read.
