Sharon Reaves is an excellent web designer and art consultant. Not only is she talented at web design and art editing/consulting, but she is responsible and quick at her job, and a great listener. She knew exactly what I wanted my website to look like and did the job quickly and accurately. I highly recommend working with Ms.Reaves.
