I started off like most people started getting into art, with a box of crayons and some multicolored paper. From there I branched out into many different mediums. One of my strong suits was always illustration. As a child and to this day I am constantly drawing something. Whether it is a little cartoon animal or a portrait, I am always putting pencil to paper in one way or another In High school I realized my affinity for ceramics and sculpting. Later on in college I entered into the Biological sciences and studied Environmental Plant Biology for a few years before changing my major to Fine Art.? I graduates with a Bachelors in Fine Art from Ohio University. I received the Community artist award for Athens Ohio and have hosted and been a curatorial assistant for many art shows. I received first place in the “Decorative Vessel” competition at the Laguna Art Festival Mud Slinger’s Day in 2007. Since then I have taken up photography and delved deeper into graphic design. Along side my sculpting and ceramic work, I strongly developed my skills in graphic design while at Ohio U.
I currently hold the position of Lead Graphic Artist at my job and have the good fortune to use my creativity every day. I try to do as much photography as I can and get lucky enough to do some sculpting from time to time. Everyday, I am working to perfect my artistic skills in any manner that I can.
Oh, and no that crocodile wasn’t really there. I do like taking photos of wildlife but not in a suicidal manner…Photoshop can be so much fun sometimes!
