I'm a 30-something Web designer and graphic artist from Kentucky, currently living on the coast of New Jersey. I have two cats, a chinchilla, a husband, and a kind disposition. I enjoy Star Trek, video games, dancing and playing chess.
I was drawing before I could speak. I attended a school for the artistically gifted as a visual arts major throughout adolescence and graduated high school with my class's highest award for artistic merit. Several murals, commissions, and exhibits later I attended college, majored in Web and graphic design, graduated at the top of my class, and began working in my field. I've worked as a Web developer, a graphic designer and a newspaper editor/desktop publisher.
In art and artistry I work in clays, graphite, oils, acrylics, watercolors, enamels, and a variety of unconventional mediums. I'm a trained professional-grade leather worker and jeweler. My experience in Photoshop has crossed the dozen year mark and the rest isn't far behind. This well-rounded skill set is often applied to my design work and brings inspiration to craft a wide range of visual marvels to suit any need.
