I don't remember when the love started—I only remember using the act of making to make sense of the world around me. What I was incapable of putting into words, I would let out by creating.
My parents found a woman who was teaching private art lessons in her basement, and she gave me traditional fundamentals and the encouragement to chase a creative career. She emphasized the importance of keeping up a strong portfolio, and from fourth grade on, I began curating my portfolio—revising and editing along the way. Eventually that portfolio of fine art got me into college for design.
When I am not at work, I still enjoy drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, book binding and hand lettering. Below is a collection of some of my "off the clock" experiments and stuff that just doesn't fit anywhere else.
