Art Direction, Audio Production and Multimedia Design
Last active: 2 months ago
I am a Digital/studio artist with a B.A. in Studio Art and 15+ years experience in graphic design and audio production. I recently went back to college and added animation and photography to my experience with graphic design. The field of digital arts is interdisciplinary. Photography, graphic design, audio production and animation, combine for a variety of results that articulate the ideas of my clients.
