Graphic Artist & Designer
116 Boston Street, Suite 1-L
Salem, MA 01970
I have been an artist all my life. I started at a very young age, permanent marker and pencil in hand decorating my bedroom walls, much to the dismay of my mother. I come from a long line of family artists. I have a grandfather and two grandmothers who are or were artists, my mother was and still is a graphic artist, along with an aunt and a brother into graphic arts. Art is in my blood and one of my passions.
Over the years I continued to develop my skills and talent, working as a free-lance artist since 1988. I finally obtained my licence in body modifications and tattoo artwork and I became a tattoo artist while living in New Hampshire. I worked at a tattoo shop for over 4 years until the shop closed down. After this I moved back to Salem, Massachusetts and made the wise decision to go back to school and obtain my Bachelor of Science degree in Graphic Arts through New England Institute of Art. Schooling helped me to fine-tune my natural talents and gave me new skills, especially in working with computer programs, such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustator, InDesign and others. I became the layout and design editor for the Naked Truth Literary Magazine during this time and enjoyed the experience. My internship was with Esente Music Group in Beverly, Massachusetts. After diligent work, I graduated in March of 2013 Cum Laude. I have been working on several free-lance and short term projects since graduation. I was employed by Sea Side Graphics, in Gloucester, Massachusetts until May 2015 as a designer and worked with customers at the front desk.
Although I am still working primarily as a free-lance graphics artist, I am also looking for a long-term graphic artist position with a company that can benefit from my skills and talents. I work hard, I am on time, and I learn quickly any new skills that need to be mastered. I am adaptable and can work alone or with a group of people, depending on the project. I work well under pressure and always turn in finished work before deadlines. I am able to work with clients and their vision of what they want and need and can also help them to make detail decisions, when needed. I always love a good challenge.
