The arts have been my passion since I was just a kid. I could always be found drawing, coloring and painting, but I never received any type of formal training until college. After I signed up for a computer class during my senior year of high school, I developed an interest in graphic design as well. It was the motivation from my instructor that got me totally hooked on it. From high school, I went on to Tallahassee Community College, where I studied graphics and art. My first professional training was, of all things, figure drawing. This opened my eyes to a whole world of new techniques and was the inspiration for my wanting to learn everything that I could about art.

After completing my AA degree at TCC, I knew that I wanted to become a graphic artist. I transferred to Florida State University, where I majored in Studio Art and Graphic Design. I take great pleasure and pride in helping people and businesses with their art and design needs. I'd heard that old quote many times, "If you enjoy what you do, you'll never work another day in your life." - Confucius. Now I know this to be true. I truly love what I do and would be honored to share my passion and my talent with you.

Before deciding to become a full time freelance designer, I was employed with Bryant Miller Olive as the Office Services Coordinator. In this role, I develop and maintain marketing materials for seven offices, assist with attorney marketing plans including: pictures, bios, brochures, ads, RFP’s, document layout and other marketing activities as needed.

In hopes of expanding my client base and skill set, after college I completed a Dreamweaver, HTML and CSS training series. This knowledge presents new opportunities for me to provide the services that you need in the area of art and graphic design.

In my free time, you can usually find me painting or working out at a CrossFit gym.
