As an illustrator, I aim to create a visual representation of another’s written ideas. A lover of detail and description, I revel in the experience of traveling through another’s thoughts and creations, a love I want to share. My vision is to take this experience beyond the word, and help those who cannot easily on their own form an image in their mind of what the author intended. I would like to bridge the gap between author and reader through a visual interpretation, imbedding it with emotion and feeling and a message gained not only through word alone, but layered within the paint and brush strokes.
To get there, I need to learn. I need to learn all that I can absorb about people, the way we connect, and the skills of my craft. The first step is an education. This opening to a million path ways to the world beyond. Internships and alumni connections will guide me through the process needed to share my gift. Eventually, my work will attract interest and my dream will finally soar, taking me to the minds and hearts of children, giving them the fuel to make their own fantasies a reality.
