I graduated with my Associates Degree in Graphic Design at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale in 2015. I don't think I knew 100% where I wanted to be in my career when I first started off, so I just ventured off and hoped eventually I would figure it out.
I started off with a few freelance jobs, then went into social media marketing and ended up back with trying to accomplish print design. I was good at it but I knew I wasn't happy and I felt I needed something else.
I was first introduced to surface design (SPD) back in 2016. I knew nothing about it but was very intrigued when I learned there was a whole community of amazing artists who were doing this type of art.
I wanted to learn more, so I spent hours researching and studying how to make a seamless pattern. Once I figured it out, I was hooked.
Surface design didn't become a serious thing for me until 2018 when I discovered Spoonflower. It's where I learned what my style was, what techniques I like and types of art that truly inspire me. The fact that I discovered I could put my own illustrations into a seamless pattern made me fall absolutely in love.
Now going on 5 years as a full time illustrator and Surface pattern designer I couldn't be any happier. As the years go on I hope to continue to work with amazing companies and small businesses and grow more as an artist.
