BTW, I use IE v8xxx under Windows Vista Home Premium.

  • “prm designs” at the very top is cut in half. I can’t even see the top of the ‘r’. It is a solid white line across the page. Funny thing, that text is lowered on all the other pages. However, the other pages still have that 5/8” of solid white horizontal wasted space.
  • A whole page of blank space at the bottom of Artist Statement page.
  • On ‘Facets’ page, the navigation buttons are off to the left of the slideshow. Actually, the navigation buttons for many of the slideshows are not consistent.
  • I really like the apron at the top. It catches the eye. However… read the dislikes below.
  • On the ‘Hall Table’ page, even though the Music writing table is on a white background, it looks ok here(unlike the white/pink mismatch mentioned below).
  • Lots of blank space at bottom of ‘Contact me’ page. Almost a page worth.
  • I appreciate your consistency with putting the page title on the top right side. Maybe a little large, but it serves its purpose.
  • Regarding your banner, I know you want to showcase your new piece but it takes up half of my viewing window. Its not worth that much real estate. You could even put “Marquetry and Woodworks” overlaying the apron and it would not take away too much from it and you’d gain more vertical space. Maybe replace that shot of the apron of “Music” with a smaller row of various shots throughout the “Music” project. Reduce it to half its current height. The picture is just too large as it is.
  • The oval tray to the right of the table is tilted and looks like you just threw it up there. Crop it or remove it. :) Sorry, it just looks out of place.
  • On ‘Watercolor dye technique’ page, the bottom left photo looks out of place with the white background. Can you make it pink to match the rest? Also, the sorta folded leaf on the mid right is the only zoom I like. The other three either use Flash or some other animation that makes them painstakenly slow. IMO, you should REALLY get rid of the animation. It serves no purpose.
  • On ‘A Little Cabinetree’ page, the pictures overlap. Maybe you designed it that way. It is not that bad, but a little odd.
  • On the ‘Boxes’ page, the ‘Reversible Box’ pictures are not both vertically aligned. The left one is about 1/16” higher than the right one.
  • On the ‘Misc.’ page, either remove the word video or say “Albatross Reveal(w/video)”. Same for Seiner.
Nit pics:
  • The corners of the serving tray and ship(dscn1124.jpg) on the home page should have the corners cleaned up. You know, the part where the contrasting traingle patch is. A little photo-shopping would do the trick.

Conclusion: I’m not overly fond of the overlapping pictures on some pages but it seems to work. You have a nice variety of your work shown. Not too many pages and well organized. I did not read much of the text. I assume you spell-checked it all.

Sorry for being so ‘matter of fact’. It is late and I’m in a hurry to get to sleep.
