I have viewed the world as an artist from the beginning of my memory. Art was always first. Growing up, I never would have dreamed I could use this ability to build a career in graphic design, art direction and ultimately creative direction. But, I did. I traveled, worked with amazing professionals and had a dream job for many years. The trade off was setting aside the practice of art making that had led me to this vocation in the first place.
Now, over two decades later, I have stepped off the management end of the business and taken stock in my daily life. What brings me joy? Design. Art. Nature. Time to get my hands dirty again. Time to rekindle the passion for traditional arts and discover new mediums to express myself. Time to put that in the forefront. I am thrilled to once again put Art First.
