From even the earliest years of my life, I have always been extremely passionate about art. Throughout highschool my passion became a serious matter when I decided art was the direction I wanted my future career to be in. Although my only experience was in fine arts drawing and painting, upon taking some digital classes my passion expanded to the graphic side of art. The opportunities graphic design creates, in combining the use of illustrations, photography, typography and graphic art, was exactly what I had always been looking for in art. I am a very social person and using my abilities and talents to be able to communicate to people is a very powerful job that I take seriously. I aim to never stop learning new skills within my field.
