I have always enjoyed writing. I find it a great medium to express myself. Writing is a great tool to communicate the thoughts that I am unable to verbalize. I have written several award winning speeches. Everything from sermons, to closing arguments (for competition purposes only). I have a great sense of humor, but I can write any piece required of me. I am a married mother of two and I am currently pursing a degree in child development with a minor in sociology. I will admit that I am new to the freelance world. Yet, I know any person that takes a chance on me will not be disappointed.

I was born an artist - I think I've had a sketchpad and a pencil in my hand since I could sit-up. I've always had a passion for art and I feel that comes across in all of my work, whether it's fine art or graphic design. I am a professional fine artist with talents in illustration, drawing, painting with acrylic & watercolor, cartooning and a concentration in children's book illustration and artwok for greeting cards. I specialize in creating hand drawn illustrations that I scan and then digitally color for sharp and beautiful finished artwork. I have a particular interest in children's book illustrations, and love to create charming, fun and unique cartoons to fit any style. I have also created designs, paintings and drawing for Blue Mountain Arts Greeting Cards.

My art is the result of my passion for drawing, love of animation and exposure to computer science, all of which heavily influenced my subject matter and the development process of my illustrations. Often the subjects I approach are translated into an image influenced by animations, video games and fond childhood memories. Depictions of dystopian futures and unrealistic human feats are some of the ways I approach conveying a broader idea. My art is subtle and unexpected in communicating themes. My illustrations merge both traditional and digital art form to create the final image. The use of traditional mediums serves as a distinct visual element to convey the thought process involved in the construction of the composition. Digital coloring is applied to merge the two styles using color schemes that complement the imagery. The finished piece is bright with distinct color schemes in order to develop an interesting image that challenges the viewer to engage and understand the meaning behind the illustration.

I am a journalist from Ohio who graduated with a degree in Electronic Media Management, from Kent State University's School of Journalism and Mass Communication. I am primarily interested in politics, women's rights, and gay and lesbian issues. Although I tend to write and read about serious topics, I'm a big fan of humorous movies and comedic writing as well. I studied a wide variety of media techniques in college. I was a columnist and editorial writer for an award-winning college paper. I also did producing work for news programs and entertainment programs at my school's television studio, where I learned basic production methods and Final Cut Pro. My first internship was for a local newspaper in Northeast Ohio, and my senior internship was at The Advocate, a gay and lesbian magazine and website in Los Angeles. Currently, I'm concentrating on freelance and creative writing work until I enroll in graduate school.
