I find joy in pursuing graphic design and other creative ventures. My childhood was filled with creative projects inspired by those around me. To further develop my abilities, I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design from Delta State University in 2008. I am now a new mother and I am inspired by my little one to continue my creative journey!

 

I enjoy seeing the vision of others come to life. Dedication, excellence and accountability is what you are in store for when you entrust me as a creative leader with your endeavors.
