I have been interested in art and making things since I was very young. Whether it be drawing, playing with paints, or pasting together paper clippings from used magazines, I have always felt something inside telling me to create. I went to college, determined to make art work for me. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Advertising Design in May 2014, and once graduated, I got a job working as a graphic artist for an oil and gas company. I worked there for about two years as the only graphic artist in the company, managing and creating all of their marketing and branding assets.

In March 2016 I took the plunge and became a freelance graphic designer. I worked with a variety of small businesses on logo projects and other branding needs. You can take a look at some of those projects here.

While freelancing, I also taught myself watercoloring, modern calligraphy, and hand lettering techniques. I began practicing more and more using these skills, and with the help of social media, I began to get client work based around my newly developed style and skills. I still love and am passionate about graphic design, but I now use these new skills  to help bring an even greater authenticity and creativity to my brand and client projects.

If you like what you see, I'd love to chat and discuss your creative needs.
