I am a graphic designer of over five years, and practicing cosmetologist of three years. While I originally focused on traditional art, digital art and graphic design quickly took the main stage. I decided to train in cosmetology to further widen my range of artistic mediums.
After high school, I studied general education and graphic design at St. Charles Community College. My three years of attendance was funded by the Missouri/Illinois A+ Program.
I graduated from Lindenwood University with a Bachelors of Arts in 2016. My degree consists of a major in Graphic Design, and a minor in Marketing. Throughout my stay at University, I worked in the LU Print Lab, creating and producing all of the propaganda for Lindenwood events.

LOGO DESIGN AND TYPOGRAPHY
Aside from various freelance projects and photography shoots, I worked in Lindenwood University's Print Lab for two years before I was hired on as a paid intern at Quick Draw Graphics, which turned into a full time position after graduation. Following that, I went on to complete another six-month paid internship with Classic Sign Services. Currently, I am building a portfolio of kitchen and bath design with Lowe's Home Improvement.
I have created multiple logo designs for active Youtubers and designed various advertising and promotional materials for small mom-and-pop shops. I am also a regular photographer for a community Live Action Role Play (LARP) game.
