Marketing Materials: Zeroing in.... 

“In addition to being exceptionally creative, Oriana knows how to develop an “angle” and deliver copy that editors are looking for. 
This ability has resulted in valuable press exposure for our clients.”

Jan and Steve Kanaba, Media People International

This writer understands how everyone, especially the editors of newspapers, magazines and online sites, are overwhelmed with information in today's busy world. Thus, the marketing materials she writes -- press releases, newsletters, brochures and web sites as well as biographies, corporate profiles and marketing proposals -- function as hard-working tools.

Astute, focused and involving an attention-getting hook, these materials make it much less likely that an Internet browser will move on. Or an office’s "circular file" receives another addition.

of the West - - "Join A Gang" - - won an award

Artful Writing: Words become brushstrokes

“Oriana has demonstrated not only impressive writing skills but, of even greater importance, the ability to communicate
the message that we want to impart to both existing and potential donors.”

William Faust, Faust Gallery and the Lovena Ohl Foundation

Oriana’s interest in art began with classes at the Chicago Art Institute. She continued to take instruction in painting, visited galleries and museums in Africa, Europe and the United States and maintained friendships with an extensive network of artists who work in many different mediums. “After all, if you’re going to write about art, learning about different techniques, art history and individual artists certainly helps,” stresses the writer.

The first freelance art client was the renowned Elaine Horwitch Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. During the ensuing years, Oriana has written articles, advertorials, brochures, newsletters, website bios and marketing materials for museums, galleries, fine art centers and individual artists. For several years, she covered the art scene for the Arizona Republic’s Phoenix and West Valley metro sections.
