I always knew that I wanted to do something creative and fun, and wanted something versatile for when I had children. So, after exploring things like writing and illustration, I set my sites on Graphic Design as a career path.
Flash forward to graduating college with a BS in Graphic Design, I hit the work place right as the economy took a tank in 2009. With scarcity in my job outlook, I decided to reinvent and balance out my education with a Masters in Marketing. I finished my degree while working full time first as a Graphic Designer then as a Project Manager, always maintaining a creative outlet in my work and personal life.
I finished my schooling and worked for a company handling their website advertising sales planning, i.e. media planning. I got married just over 4 years ago. My husband and I have a wonderful, bright-eyed and smiley baby boy.
What Lead Me Here
All that schooling and life experience has led me to where I am today. I have my Etsy shop – Dream is A Wish, Freelance Graphic Design, calligraphy, fashion illustration, and now this blog.
Taking care of my son and staying home is my main job. However, I try to create every day so that I can share with you and grow as an artist. In addition to this, I started taking part in monthly calligraphy challenges on Instagram and drawing fashion illustrations. This has allowed me to learn and develop new skills to incorporate into each design that is commissioned.
I also have a huge passion for makeup. I started selling SeneGence products last year, and before that spent two years curating my make up style and collection with subscription boxes like Ipsy, Birchbox, and Sephora play.
I couldn’t be happier. I am challenged by my work, challenged by my personal life and I have large dreams to achieve on the horizon. So, be prepared! Join me on my glamorous journey through fashion, makeup, and art.
Here’s to the future and to the Glory of God! Feel free to contact me via Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or email.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
