I am a born and raised California girl who has relocated to Tucson, Arizona and a skater on Furious Truckstop Waitresses for Tucson Roller Derby. I love typography, color palettes, textures and anything related to design. I am a firm believer that design is not art. Design is about communication through images and every image is broken up into dots and lines. It is all about how to get those dots and lines to say what needs to be said and have that be understood from different view points. To me design is organized and has a purpose, it is not just pretty colors and a script font, it is a force that makes the viewer think. I love experimenting with new techniques and playing around with the latest trends. I am also guilty of over using drop shadows, texture overlays, and the pen tool.
