Throughout the course of my artistic career, my compilation of artwork has gradually developed around my passions, ultimately foreshadowing my future career path. I discovered my dexterity and interest in the treatment of fashion, type, street art, and pop art. A majority of my portfolio pieces reflect a concentration that incorporates a variety of techniques inspired by couture designers, graffiti artists, typographers as well as pop artists. By implementing these influences, I have expanded the variety of compositions I produce. The compositions that I have created over the course of my college experience reflect a more modern style, while incorporating the influences of current and past designers, including John Baldessari, Banksy, Milton Glaser, and Andy Warhol. These influences allow me to further explore my fascination with various art forms and to utilize digital media. Prior to entering higher education, I had little to no experience with computer programs. I owe it to my coursework that I have become proficient in utilizing the programs InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. Now that I am more comfortable with these programs, I intend on using them in combination with manually developed elements so that my portfolio is not strictly computer-based. Furthermore, by engrossing myself in my studio work, I have developed a passion for incorporating word and image elements into single compositions. My style has developed to encompass a refined, edgy, and clean appearance. I have started to discover myself as an artist, enabling me to apply my artistic style throughout my class work and freelance pieces; what is most exciting in this discovery, is that my talent is beginning to be sought after by organizations and individuals who would like for me to design for them.Now currently attending the College of New Jersey as a Graphic Design major with a minor in Marketing, I hope to further my studies in these fields in an attempt to delve into the advertising-design industry. In addition to studying art on campus, I plan to study abroad in England, Ireland, or Italy to gain further perspectives in these fields. Additionally, I hope to intern in New York City to be engulfed in the advertising and art worlds. I want to gain as much knowledge as possible by working for another artist by becoming involved in a firm. After graduating from The College of New Jersey, I plan to attend graduate school to obtain my masters from Rhode Island School of Design, Parsons The New School for Design, Pratt School of Art and Design, or the Fashion Institute of Technology. Art and design have become a significant part of my life, and by furthering my education and experience, I endeavor to create compositions that are dualistic, in that they are both functional and aesthetically appealing.
