BFA - graphic design

I get a lot of inspiration from retro art. I have always been fascinated by the 1950s in general, but it is the style of artwork that really inspires me. Advertisements show a simple time with smiling faces while pop art uses bright clashing colors, showing a different side of the generation. I am captivated by this mix. The artwork is simple yet creative, which is something I strive to achieve in my own work. I try to take this retro style and make it my own by using a modern approach.

In my designs I prefer to be very hands-on. I would rather make something using paint or a pencil than create an effect on the computer. I also prefer to use my own photography whenever possible. I love to draw and paint as much as I love the elements of design and thrive when I get the opportunity to combine them.
