You study and research and express yourself through a focused lens, to capture the right emotions and theme. With entertainment illustration clients, you get to get super weird and creative, and with graphic design at ocreations you have rules, goals, and structure. Two different types of challenges, both of which I love." She is continually inspired by art nouveau, comic books, and movie posters, and is an avid football and all things geek-nerd fan.
