I began to refine my skills and explore different venues where they could be put to good use. Fashion illustration and technical flats have always piqued my interest as well as graphic design and typography. I believe both fields are inexplicably related, bound together by the decorative arts.
During my time at studying illustration at the Savannah College of Art and design, I tried my hand at many different media, finding a strong affinity for collage. Collage is interesting because it is limitless. There are infinite possibilities when it comes to what materials one could potentially use. It is a trial-and-error process but I am a quick learner when it comes to working with new things. I also fit my work to a variety of markets including books and publishing, advertising, editorial, package design and fashion. Garment illustration became my favorite for it allowed me to taylor my work to an industry I've always dreamed of working in.
In my past employment, I have learned many skills and have become quite organized and time-conscious. With any task that is given to me, I consistently do my best and go the extra mile whenever possible. In my sales positions, I have honed in on the art of conversation and making whomever is in my presence feel at-ease and comfortable. In my design positions, I've developed my listening skills as well as my visual vocabulary and intuitive aesthetic sensibilities. In my current position as a design intern at One Jeanswear group, I am learning first-hand about the garment industry: its organization, expectations and processes. I hope to further my learning and experience in the fashion industry and perhaps one day land a job at one of my dream design houses such as Thierry Mugler or Jean Paul Gaultier.
