I am a horror / fantasy illustrator with over 20 years experience in the field of art. I work both traditionally and digitally, sometimes combining the two to achieve the best look possible for a particular piece. I attended the Rochester Institute of Technology and SUNY at Brockport. I am extremely easy to work with, confident in my abilities, yet humble enough not to let my ego get in the way of getting a job done to the client's satisfaction. I also have a good turn around time on a majority of projects, depending on the complexity, and haven't missed a deadline yet. That may change come the zombie apocalypse. I grew up at the tail end of the atomic age. That wonderful time when we’d get under our desks at school for atomic bomb drills, Godzilla was on TV, Hammer films were on late at night and Adam West was Batman. My parents were big horror fans and my dad especially loved the sci-fi genre, so my brothers and I grew a fondness for all things macabre. I especially love the irony that things of horror give me a warm, fuzzy feeling. I had a healthy diet of comic books, through my youth and at about 10 I discovered Famous Monsters magazine. Soon after, came Fangoria & Heavy Metal and then came the movie that defined the rest of my career as an artist. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead. The trailer alone gave me nightmares for weeks. I became obsessed with zombies and was determined to draw & paint them and all of the other wonderfully, terrifying creatures of the shadows.

Dear Sirs / Madame June, 2011 My name is Silvia Cecilia Stroet. I am a Canadian citizen living and working in Santiago de Querétaro, Mexico as an E.F.L. Teacher / Scientific Editor since Jan. 2005. Please accept this letter as my application for employment as a proofreader with your company. I was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia in 1988 where I attained my university education. I hold a B.A. in English Poetry and Literature and a Certificate to Teach E.S.L. Linguistics. After completing my education I lived in South Korea for one year where I taught Conversation and English Grammar. Upon returning to Vancouver in 1996, I began working for private English Schools whose primary business focus was either teaching international students or recent immigrants who were having problems assimilating into the mainstream schooling system due to language difficulties. I created and taught various specialized English programs, many of which are still being taught today. In early 2005, I moved from Canada to Mexico. Initially I taught in private schools, most specializing in executive classes in local companies. In 2006, I was promoted from teaching to being the Academic Director at International Language Center. In this position I oversaw a staff of fifteen teachers and took care of the daily responsibilities of a small school. As of August 2007, I started working for Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro, at first as a grammar teacher, and later as the English Language Lab Coordinator in the Nursing Faculty. Soon I was asked by the university’s Investigation Office to edit scientific articles destine for publication. Eventually, I began teaching Scientific Writing and TOEFL for the Engineering Faculty. Today I continue to hold this position and am the scientific document editor for the Engineering Faculty at Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro as well as for Universidad Polytecnica de Querétaro. As my resume and the reference letters attest, I am a capable professional, proficient in performing well within strict guidelines and deadlines set out for me. I believe I would be a valuable addition to your team. Currently I am under contract, but would be available elsewhere by mid to late August. I would like the opportunity to further discuss your needs and my qualifications. I look forward to hearing from you. I would like to thank you in advance for considering me for employment with your organization. Sincerely Silvia C. Stroet P.S. Can you please let me know when you have received my documents. Curriculum Vitae Silvia Cecilia Stroet Proofreader Personal Information: Address: Prol. Bernardo Quintana # 4008 Casa # 23 C.P. 76168 Email: smilinggirl62@hotmail.com Objective: To obtain a position as a freelance proofreader with a company that would support my efforts, yet give me a certain amount of freedom. Highlights and Qualifications: ? Self-motivated employee, who works well both independently and as a team player. ?
