Dear Sir/Madam

I am a highly imaginative and driven designer looking for an outlet or venue to express that energy, discipline and creativity. My journey in the arts has been a challenging, exhilarating, and extremely rewarding experience and I would, more than anything; like to apply all the skills that I've honed, the talents that I've cultivated and the invaluable lessons that I have learned and put them into practice for your firm.

Thank you kindly,

Bob W. Pierre.
