About Candidate

Hi there, it’s great to unofficially meet you!

I am a creative thinker and visual enthusiast and find immense passion in graphic design as well as my mixed family heritage. I aim to create work that evokes raw emotion and makes people stop and stare and connect. I love underdogs and appreciate open and non-judgmental conversations with others. I’m not afraid to explore and love connecting with others, especially at local markets where I get to sell art prints as well as whatever else I can get my creative paws on!
