Artist Skills

Learning never ends when you begin a business of your own.  Along with a formal education in fine art and the graphic arts, I continued educating myself with digital design books and books in mixed media, watercolor, painting, and so on.

I spent many hours fine tuning my skills with online webinars and tutorials in digital media, photography, and design. This allows my skills to always be current with the latest software, media, and art techniques.

Creativity is always a journey of exploring!
