Service Description

I am an artist, specializing in digital illustration and graphic design. I have been creating different kinds of art and developing many of my skills for most of my life professionally as well as in my spare time.

I graduated from the Video Game Art & Animation program at Holland College in 2013 where I learned the artistic processes of video game creation and design. This lead me to working in the industry at a small studio for a year, then working as the Team Lead and an artist during a 3 month internship, helping other interns with less experience to develop a demo of a video game and business application.

All of my experience has helped me to grow and develop my skills by working with a team of other talented artists and also pleasing different clients. I am now aspiring to work as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer with the talents I have come to grow and wish to continue to grow.
