I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil, and I love being able to communicate ideas visually. Now I am looking to translate that passion into a career. I have in the past worked in retail, as a receptionist, I've done welding and metal work, I've designed and cast my own jewelry, I can draft (both by hand and CAD), and I love learning how to do new things. Thanks for stopping by to see my portfolio!
