My eye and experience in diverse kinds of art makes me a strong and unique choice in the computer design field. I have been working in Adobe Photoshop for 14 years now and have used it for collage and composition, animation, photo restoration, scanning, color correction and photo lab retouching. I have worked as a digital imaging artist for a commercial photography studio. I enjoy video animation and editing. I worked in graphic design alongside of my studies in it, which made me a valuable asset to any project I worked on at the time. I have many skills in the arts fields, from graphic design to hand stitching for costumes at GEVA Theatre to working many years as a make up artist and clothing stylist. I've even worked as a bridal consultant! I enjoy crafts, designing characters and art for T-shirts and greeting cards. I run a craft guild in my community and practice recycled crafts with my artist colleagues. I designed the 2010 CD cover for the Crash Test Dummies album, "Ooh La La" and for their label, Deep Fried Records, LLC. I also conceived, directed and edited their first video for that album, "And It's Beautiful", which can be found on their official site, http://crashtestdummies.com. I am now delving into the practice of Mehndi Henna Body Art and enjoy it very much.
