Creative Janes

I am a classically trained fine artist and a graphic artist. I graduated from the California College of the Arts in 1991 with a BFA in Interdisciplinary fine arts with a focus on Painting and Drawing. I have been a stay-at-home mom for the past 10 years, as well as an artist and designer. My two girls think that I have mad skills in the drawing and designing department, and they love it when I get too busy to cook and they get to eat take out. They think you should hire me so they don't have to eat my cooking.  I agree.

The other Jane, Amber Fraley, has the brains to make your taglines clever, memorable, and catchy, and all of your content needs grammatically correct and well written.  We can work with any budget to give our clients the quality of work that they deserve. We do it all, from business cards to vehicle graphics and architectural signage designs. We can write, edit, illustrate, and design your book, or provide you with a great looking monthly newsletter.  No job is too big, or too small. Let us give you a quote, we think you'll love our prices and our ideas and services. If it needs to look good, sound good, and represent your business in a fresh and creative way, the Janes can do it.

I am a self-described word nerd. I love words. I love
writing them, reading them, rewriting them and rewording them. (I know right? BORING. Well, I’m just a weirdo that way.)
I can write almost anything you can think up, or I can edit your work. I can edit with what I call a “light hand” so that you can be confident your work is grammatically correct (and yet you might not even notice the changes I’ve made) or I can edit with a “heavy hand” if you know your own writing really stinks.

I graduated in 1997 with an English degree from the University of
Kansas. My first job after college was as a reporter, editor and ad builder for a small business newspaper in Lawrence, Kansas. I then moved on to become an editor with Grit Magazine in Topeka, Kansas. I left Grit to have a kid and become a stay at home mom, but couldn’t stay away from publishing. I started my own monthly progressive-alternative publication for the Lawrence Kansas market, and also acquired a wedding planner magazine that had previously been printed on newsprint. I figured brides-to-be would prefer a wedding planner magazine to be slick and glossy; turns out I was right.

I sold my publications and now I freelance. I write articles for several area magazines and lay out and edit the newsletters for a couple of local organizations.

 And now, along with my partner Lana, I'm ready to work with you!
