I am currently a full-time student of art; working toward my Bachelor’s of Fine Art degree as I continue with my other projects and freelance business.
I have taken a multitude of art and design courses at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C.; and am currently enrolled in a degree program at Harford Community College in Maryland with a double major of fine art and graphic design.
I work with the latest and greatest design tools and software to help bring my clients and customers the best quality art and design. I keep my skills current and am always learning new ways of creating beautiful artwork.
With over 18 years of experience with Adobe Photoshop, I now use the Adobe Creative Cloud full software suite for my digital work, so I always have the latest technology at my fingertips. I designed this website using the new Adobe Muse.
I work on an iMac, MacBook Pro, iPad, and Wacom pro tablet. I love gadgets!
