Art has been fulfilling for me and makes me feel successful. It has given me the feeling that I have accomplished something. Whenever I have completed a design, I find I have not only enjoyed the process but also the end result. Ever since I was young, I felt drawn to artwork because it was always something fun to do. Once in school, I developed different techniques and developed an appreciation for artwork that surprised me. My exposure to art gave me goals to strive for, which continue to enable me to become a better designer.

My designs are best when they communicate my ideas and style into a finished product. One technique I use is to come up with simple ideas; I like to provoke emotion both for the viewer and myself. Style is the particular way I have designed the artwork I am working on. The content makes the whole piece come together. My thoughts and imagination are very important in the makeup of my design work. Without imagination and creativity, I feel that the final product will not illustrate what I am trying to accomplish. If my design turns out well and makes sense to the viewer, I have succeeded in getting the emotion and style across. Details are also essential in designing a piece of artwork, and in graphic design, the central idea must be direct and make sense.

My artwork now is different from most of my previous work, and I find that I am taking more time to establish an impression and place more emphasis on the final effect. My techniques have improved, though I have more to learn and my attention to style needs to be more refined. I am exploring more of the essential parts of my artwork, and will continue to work on my strengths.
