Another Particle Clinging to a Flame

I am Choctaw Native American who loves to draw and design for others. My top choices of media are acrylic painting, ink, vector, and music. In my spare time, I like to organize creative events and collaborate with others. I enjoy reading books and exploring the many techniques that come with graphic design. My favorite subject to read about is anything non-fiction, in particularly meta-physics. Making fliers and Logos are some of my stronger points when it comes to graphic design, but I truly enjoy illustrating concepts. My least favorite thing to do is waiting for paint to dry but of course while that is happening, I go back to reading or writing depending on my mood. I tend to work on several projects at once, which keeps my brain activity in a happy state for the most part, with the exception of drying paint. As an artist, everything is a learning experience and I find it truly fascinating what the power of art has done to advance civilization to its current state.

I’m currently in my 8th semester (4 years total) at Sacramento City College, and I have one more to go, which will earn me an Associate degree in Graphic Communications and possibly an Associate in the Arts. My main focus is Illustration, and my goal is to further implement my drawing skills into digital art and animation. After I reach my goals with school, I plan to explore entrepreneurship and pursue a career in music.

In February of 2017, I teamed up with a group of student leaders and established the SCC Creative Alliance Club as a way to help other artists find accessible platforms to sell/showcase their works. My goal as president is to encourage collaboration between creative disciplines (fine art, music, dance, theater, etc) for the sole purpose of enhancing our environment and giving back to our communities.
