I have been working professionally as a designer and illustrator for 10 years. My clientele consists of musicians, social media personalities, playwrights, food workers, blog writers, and various other small business owners. I am blessed to have wonderful clients who enjoy my work and process and continue to refer me to others. I work with my clients closely each step of the way so they always have a good idea of what to expect. Typically, I start by brainstorming with the client until an idea is established. I, then, sketch out the idea and show a sample to the client. Once we're on the same page, I finalize the piece with ink and color. After everything is finished, I show the client and make sure they are happy with the outcome. All of my work is done digitally using a Wacom Cintiq tablet. I am excited to be on this platform and hope to find new and exciting projects to work on!
