I am a young writer trying to break into the freelance world. Editing, blogging, and ghostwriting are all things that I am willing to do. Honestly I'm willing to do anything to get my foot in the door. I've got a creative writing class under my belt so rest assured that I do in fact know what I'm doing when it comes to grammar and writing something that is captivating, creative, and informative. Along with writing I am skilled in graphic design and am willing to take on any challenge that throws at me.

I am, first and foremost, very detail oriented. I am not satisfied unless I have multiple projects going at once. I often have note pads and scraps of paper tucked away in several locations so I can jot an idea down as soon as my muse reveals it to me. I thrive in chaos! I have been a photographer for twenty years and a digital editor/graphic artist for thirteen years. I've created logos for many companies along with their respective letterheads, business cards, flyers, and other advertizements. I've been a professional photographer for eleven years, working for both myself and other studios. I have also worked as an event videographer and video editor for several years. I've been drawing ever since I could hold a crayon and I specialize in portraits. With this skill in tow, I have married my eye for detail and accuracy to create conceptual drawings for inventors and intellectual property firms. I also utilize this skill to create blueprints for my own carpentry work.

I am a stagehand and part time writer, with a fine appreciation for artistic and creative endeavours. I write just about constantly - blogs, personal writing, creative writing, fiction and scripts. I can research just about anything quickly and efficiently and impart that information clearly. I see stories wherever I look in the world, so many tales waiting to be unfolded and told. I am part of the Red Phone Box ( found here: http://salomejones.com/?page_id=145 ) and have recently had the honour of having one of my short stories accepted for a new Anthology called As Above, So Below.

I am a portrait artist in the classical realist tradition who works mainly in the medium of coloured pencil; I like to accentuate the fluidity and elaborate quality of the medium. I use techniques and methods that are standard in execution to capture expressions and characteristics in a person's face and incorporate a lot of facets, as carefulness and attention to detail are key elements in the development of all of my work. Having grown up fortunate enough to be surrounded by an artistic family, I quickly and easily developed the drafting skills necessary to nearly perfect rendering of the human form while being able to achieve extraordinary likeness and detail in my pieces. I make it my goal to capture not only the physical resemblance of whomever is being portrayed in my drawings, but the essence of the individual's emotions and personality as well. Though my concentration is portraits, I am a well-rounded artist that can cover a vast array of matter and welcome commissions on all subjects. My main goal is to exceed all of your expectations and provide the personal attention necessary to make sure the process is not only gratifying for myself as an artist, but also pleasurable for those who have chosen to buy or commission my artwork as well.

For the past year I have been freelancing from my studio at home. I have built up an international client base including clients from Australia, Spain, UK and Canada as well as locally in South Africa.
