About

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 trying to pretend that I enjoy accounting or mechanical engineering, I've made 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, a marketing consultant/account manager for a commercial printer/mailing house, and a graphic designer at a full-service marketing agency. I've taught children's art classes, art camps and have been a board member with my area Arts Council, am on the board of directors of Intercom - Kalamazoo Area Association of Professional Communicators. Oh, and I 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.
