What is graphic recording?

Graphic recording is a visual tool used to synthesize information intriguing viewers the day of the event, and a vital resource in revisiting the content of an event. Think of it as a journey, a kind of visual storytelling. My services have been requested to keep attendees engaged, entertained, and awake. Graphic recording is an excellent service for corporate retreats, conferences, brainstorming sessions, team-building exercises, educational purposes and more. Digital illustrations (for a separate fee) can be produced after the event. 

I specialize in graphic recording and illustration in the Ann Arbor, Detroit, southeast Michigan area, available for graphic recording worldwide. Rates vary for projects involving travel.

My hourly fee is $150 with a 3-hour minimum. This does not include travel mileage. Multi-day rates are available for your unique circumstance. Please call for a quote. 


We start with a phone consultation to discuss duration, logistics and topics for your event. An overview of the day is helpful, but not necessary for preparation. Once the details are agreed upon, I will send a contract to sign and return to secure your date. 

I will arrive 15 minutes earlier than the start time to set up the space. You are welcome to keep the paper drawings at the end of the event and scan, frame, or manipulate them for future use.        

•  $25 materials fee, $35 for custom palette       • Roll paper illustration is yours to keep       


I offer consulting in mind mapping (the organization of ideas and action) and teach graphic recording. Either or both make a great retreat for team building, problem solving and learning a creative skill. Please contact me for a customized lesson plan to fit your needs.
