I am a Graphic & Web Designer, animal-lover, horse-woman, and proud Army Wife (and soon to be mom!). I currently reside in Lawton, OK outside of Ft. Sill. I have been interested in art since I was big enough to hold a crayon and have been designing professionally for the last 4 years, when I started freelancing in 2007. In 2008, I received two Associates Degrees in Web Design & Graphic Design and also began working for Lion Brothers as a Digitizer/Graphic Artist. I enjoy peppermint milkshakes from Chik-fil-A, sitting around in my pajamas all day, and contemplating the nature of time travel.
