I have been creating digital artwork since 2009, but my love for the field spans my entire life. I have been working as a paid design professional since 2011 and am currently working at an Engineering company in Huntsville, AL. In addition to my personal work, I also do freelance and volunteer design work on the side to improve my skills.

My portfolio showcases a wide body of works that range from client requested graphic designs to my personal photography and paintings with everything in between. My blog , which will be updated on a semi-regular basis, features the most recent additions to my portfolio and personal work as well as other design related information.
 
Although I design with a number of mediums in various styles, my favorite pieces to create are digital collages. The process is somewhat complicated, but in general I begin with basic photographs and add many layers and textures to create unique surrealistic pieces. My biggest inspiration for these digital collages is an artist named Maggie Taylor. I have loved her works ever since I first saw them. A gallery of her pieces can be found on her website, maggietaylor.com .
 
In addition to Maggie, there are so many other talented artists out there who deserve to be mentioned as well. You can check out my links page to see a list of artists who, like me, are young professionals working to build their artistic careers.
