Graphic design has always been a passion of mine from a very young age. When I was young I was an avid drawer, and I always carried a pencil and paper with me wherever I went. I doodled, colored, sketched, and loved drawing typography. I loved to try and draw lettering that looked digital. Then, I was introduced to Microsoft Paint with Windows '95, and I loved it! I was immedately fascinated with digital art.
