ABOUT ME

I’m a highly creative and technically competent graphic designer and art director with over 15 year experience. I am currently working for a fashion company. I love painting and I am a children’s book illustrator for an Ngo that supports environmental projects. I am professional, hardworking and passionate about my job. I am constantly learning to use new programs out of my desire to gain new skills and keep improving myself.
