I attended the Rhode Island School of Design and got my BFA in Illustration in 2011. Being both vastly experienced with the latest Adobe Suite (CS6) and familiar with both PC and MAC, I am a hard-working and dedicated designer. I am excited by new challenges and revel in jobs well done. I am very detail oriented and specialize in the cleaning and coloring of designs, as well as the creation of original artwork. Please feel free to contact me regarding design opportunities.
I got my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Illustration with a cumulative GPA of 3.749. RISD has a creative and competitive atmosphere where I had the opportunity to learn many things outside of my major, including pattern making, carpentry, and animation. My focus was primarily on illustration courses, where I mastered the Adobe programs. I use this knowledge today to edit and create patterns for the Home Textiles industry.
