I have been working professionally as a designer and illustrator for 10+ years. I am blessed to have wonderful clients who enjoy my work 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. Then, I sketch out the idea and send over a sample. Once we're on the same page, I finalize the piece with ink and color. All of my work is done digitally from start to finish. Through this platform, I hope to find new and exciting projects to work on with other creatives.
