Artist, graphic designer, book lover, nature enthusiast, animal lover, jewelry maker, trivia junkie… these are just a few of the words that could be used to describe me.
I have always enjoyed art of some kind, ebony pencil always being a favorite. Throughout my schooling I took as many art classes as allowed. Drawing classes and Clay and Ceramics classes were among my favorites. When I went off to ETSU for college I decided on Photography as my major.
After taking some time off from school, I decided to go back and attend Pellissippi State. I chose Graphic Design as my major. I had never worked on a computer to create art before but thought it would be interesting to learn. I fell in love. Graphic Design gave me what I wanted, a way to be creative and also make a living as an artist. Something I had always dreamed of. I look forward to continuing to grow as a designer and forever expanding my knowledge and skill.
