We are thrilled to welcome a new broad, Karen Kurycki, as our senior art director.

A native of Rochester, N.Y., Karen holds a BFA degree in visual communication design from Kent State University in Ohio. After graduation, she chose to move to Jacksonville because of the warmer climate she enjoyed as a child during family vacations in the area.
