Objective: As an artist I use graphic design to combine my hands-on artistic skills with the fluidity of creating digital art. I enjoy the infinite possibility that this art form holds. My intent is to create, amuse and entertain while understanding form and content. As a young designer I look forward to learning, absorbing and being guided by a knowledgable mentor.

With these characters she has created a web presence and products with her signature drawings on them. I originally started as an intern at this studio during my sophmore year of college.
