I have known that I wanted to be an artist of some kind for as long as I can remember. I started drawing as soon as I could hold a pencil like many children do, but I didn’t stop. However, it wasn’t until I was in high school that I had the privilege of taking some basic graphic design classes that taught me about Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and Bridge. It was during these classes that I finally determined exactly what kind of artist I wanted to be because of how much I loved using those programs.
Those classes also helped me gain an understanding and appreciation for the amount of work and skill that goes into different pieces of digital and printed media, such as posters for movies and events. The observations I had made of particularly eye catching graphics and posters from then on influenced how I would approach my own design work and made me want to strive to create equally as beautiful, eye-catching, and interesting pieces of my own.
