I'm a lefty with a hyperactive "right brain". I'm a freelance graphics designer and illustrator. I also design and create custom beaded jewelry. Last year I just started dabbling in animation and motion graphics. So that is pretty much where my head has been of late. I'm pretty new to blogging, but ya know what?...I think I like it!
