Sum yourself up into one sentence I am a mother of 3 (2 boys and a new girl), an Army wife, a stay-at-home mom, and a self-taught graphic and web designer.
Where were you born and where do you call home? I was born in Atlanta, Ga and home is at Fort Hood, Texas
What do you currently do for a living? Is it what you’ve always dreamed of doing? If not, what would you like to be doing? Right now I am a stay-at-home mom, but I dream of have a s successful graphic design business. It is my passion, I get so excited when I learn something new, and I wake up wanting to try out new ideas.
How and when did you start designing? I started when i was a freshman in college (about 10 years ago) when designing my own blog.
Do you design as your “day job”? I really consider taking care of my kids a day job. It is when they are napping or sleeping at night when I get to have fun designing.
What gets you excited? Designing someone’s blog or website.
What’s your setup like? Do you have an office, work from home? Do you work alone or with a team? I work from home, although I wish I had an office at home. (One day i will)
Where do you go to find inspiration, and what are you inspired by? I am inspired by other designers, so I go to their sites to se what they have done, and say to myself, “I can do that or will try that!”
If you could accomplish one BIG thing in your lifetime, what would it be? It would be to raise my kids to be respectful, loving and successful adults. That would be my greatest accomplishment before becoming a successful freelance web designer.
