ARTIST PROFILE

me-hh.jpg

My passion for art, design, and photography ignited while studying abroad in Germany and Austria back in my college days. My first degree was in Fine Arts with an emphasis on photography. I later went back to school and added graphic design to the mix. Then I started my own business (15+ years ago) and began selling my stylized street photography from my many European travels. Now I love creating eye-catching compositions, illustrations, and designs for any platform.
