Hello, and welcome to my portfolio!
I earned my Associates Degree in Visual Communication with specialization in Graphic Design from Austin Community College in May of 2018. Art and design have always been my greatest passions. When I was younger, my favorite thing to do was go through recycling bins in art classrooms at my school and make art using whatever unusual materials I could find. Newspaper, cardboard, aluminum foil, old magazine pages, cans, maps, eyeshadow mixed with glue, whatever I could get my hands on. As I got older I moved my creativity to the computer and started learning how to create digitally. I still get excited every time I get to create something either with my hands or on a screen.
Before I started studying graphic design, I majored in photography. I am still passionate about photography and am glad I took those classes because they have really come in handy with a lot of my design work and a lot of the same skills cross over.
Some things about me besides my experience with art & design:
I am originally from Deadwood, South Dakota and have lived in Austin, Texas for 12 years. I love animals, cooking, thrift shopping, learning about unsolved mysteries and true crime stories, being a tourist in my own city, traveling, and spending time with my lovely family and friends. I am drawn to all things retro, unusual, and colorful.
Thanks for checking out my work!
