Art is a language that can be translated in a million ways. Art is universal. Mankind has had a need to create ever since the paleolithic period. Art shapes humanity, and gives us a look into the past. It is for this reason that I got interested in art in the first place. I remember as clear as day going to the Salvador Dalí museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. It was great to see a full spectrum and alterations of his work from a child up to an adult. I loved to see how refined Salvador Dalí's process was in his later years. Ever since then, I have strived to be as multi talented and influential to future artists as Salvador Dalí was to me. I have spent most of my life in scenic Colorado, where mountain vistas and vibrant urban scenes heavily influence my work. My art is an expression of personal experiences, and a reflection of the past, present, and future. I like to focus on all details of my photographs, to show the connection between old and new. I love the balance and harmony between different textures and striking opposites. I encapsulate every day objects looking fresh and delectable; as if you could just reach out and touch it, taste it, feel it, hear it, or smell it. A photographer and graphic designer's job is much more than taking just pictures and making images look pretty, and I understand this quite well. Understanding that an artist needs to have a technical hold on things, I am comfortable operating all types of photography equipment and related software that are used to process quality photographs and graphic design in this day and age. I work continuously to learn new things in order to make my work professional and appealing.
I love photography, a good layout, and am a true nerd at heart. I have 5+ years working as a graphic designer and product/food photographer for a natural foods market. In my capacity as a photographer and graphic designer, I have contributed to nationwide advertisements, product label design, marketing, and in house photo shoots. In an ever growing market, I realize the value of being multi faceted and keeping up with the latest developments in the design world. I love challenging myself, and strive for the best. I have recently graduated with a BFA in graphic design and am looking to move my career forward with design and photography. It has always been a dream of mine to work within the agency industry and have a chance to create something epic. Though my degree is new, I have experience as a designer and am familiar with collaboration and working on a team with goals and branding design in mind. My work experience, credentials along with the enthusiasm of providing only quality work to the organization that I work for will definitely prove to be a positive contribution to your organization.
