What Can I Offer You?
What are my strengths?
I like variety in my creation. While I have a recognizable style I also like to challenge myself by trying new styles of art. I am not afraid to learn new things, and I am not afraid to ask questions if I don't know what I am doing. My strength lies in my ability to work alone or with others to create things that tell a story.
What can I create?
In the 12 years of experience I’ve had as a freelance artist/illustrator/designer I have taught myself to create across multiple mediums. I have designed fabric textiles for clients, created printed projects like invitations, photo announcements, flyers, and worked on digital graphics such as logos for businesses, schools, and dance studios. I also have the ability to work digitally, with pen and paper, marker, and some watercolor. I have worked on book illustrations, 1 panel comics, caricatures and more. I am excited to create and love to be inspired by the different projects I am presented with. Examples of some of my projects can be found on my portfolio page.
What makes me stand out?
While I may not have the same educational background as other artists and illustrators, I have a clear artistic voice and come at things from a different perspective. I am determined, ready to learn, and enjoy trying new programs and creative styles. Whether working with physical or digital art I enjoy creating characters and designs that bring joy to others.
