Hey folks, A little about me. I've been an artist my whole life, from a family of artists, singers and photographers. I graduated at 16 and was working for a Fortune 50 Company by 17. I have been creating art and the direct utilization of art to product development for 15 years now. In other words draw the pretty pictures the companies like and then create actual products from them. This keeps the mainstream artist stuff disciplined and sharp.Check me out and let me know if I can help. An artist MUST have a thick skin. David

Salutations, Basically, I'm a jack-of-all-trades artist. I draw, sculpt, paint, write and crochet. Working in my spare time creatively is a passion I chose to turn into a way of life. As such, I hope to provide the most excellent work at a reasonable wage. I'm not a professional with decades of experience, just an individual with over a decade of personal creative development and a little bit of talent. I trained for my freshman year at Valencia CC in their Fine Arts program and finished up at ITT Tech for System Administration. Much of my work experience is based in: Customer Service (5+ years) Technical Support(1 year) Data Entry(2+ years) Hospitality(1 year) The majority of my creative work is based on personal aspirations with the occasional commissioned piece. I have created this profile in a effort to change that and to work on more creative ventures. Please consider me for your next job!
