Some of us are just born "creative types". No matter how hard we try, we just aren't very good at Algebra, and cringe at the thought of having to balance a checkbook.

I am Gerah Dutkiewicz, the founder and manager of Richmond Creative... as I have gone through life, I've finally come to the sometimes-difficult-realization that I am one of those types.

So, instead of fighting the issue and trying to pretend that I enjoy accounting or mechanical engineering, I then combine my loves with my business experience, and make a career out of practicing the things I enjoy and am passionate about.

My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts from Western Michigan University where I majored in Organizational Communication, and a minored in Art.

Since then, I have worked as a Marketing intern for a local Community College, a graphic designer for a publishing company, and a marketing consultant/account manager for a commercial printer/mailing house and marketing firm. I've taught children's art classes and art camps for my area Arts Council, done tons of volunteering, and love writing...

I like to think of myself as a "Creative Inspirational Do-er". I feel that work and life should be balanced and strongly feel that adults should have more fun - life is too short to be dull and boring. I love style, great design, creativity and organization... I love to work with people, I love a challenge, and I settle for nothing less than perfection in a completed project.
