In January of 2009, I incorporated Strubel Studios and have since been helping businesses with their creative needs. Based in Vancouver, Washington; I work with clients both locally and around the U.S.

Shiela Strubel … I’m a mom of two smart, beautiful girls, married to a wonderful husband. I love to spend time with my family, garden, travel, go on cruises, take pictures, go out to dinner. So many things I want to do more frequently – camping, hiking and travel all over! I have a passion for art, graphic design and I enjoy creating innovative ideas.
Early Years. What Inspired My Path
Early on I knew that I was going to have art in my life, some form of it anyway. I remember sitting in front of those TV instructional art programs – the happy guy (painting his happy little paintings) and another, the name slips my mind. Anyway, I would sit there in front of the TV with pencil and paper in hand. I would follow their directions, ending up with something very similar to what they had. I loved it! So years passed…now in 7th grade, I started taking illustration and art classes. I also took creative writing and drama. In High school, after taking 4 years of art, I decided that I would go to college for fashion design and illustration. After talking with my art teacher, Mr. Denbrook. He suggested that I take a look at graphic design. I researched graphic design degrees and found that it had so many career avenues. So that was that, I attended college in Portland, Oregon. I graduated in 1997 with a degree in graphic design and marketing. I have been in the design, marketing and advertising business since 1996 (LinkedIn).
