My skills are rather varied: I produce silkscreen print items which I sell online, and also am available for work as an illustrator and graphic designer.
I also have worked several years in the item tracking sector of the Convenience Store Industry, where I gained extensive experience in Data Processing/Analysis as well as Data Entry.
I also have past experience as a front-end web designer, and am able to put these skills to work as well. I have worked in the past for Alcoa Inc. as a web developer for the company's worldwide website, as well as on various website updates for local businesses on freelance basis over the years. I am familiar with Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop/Illustrator/Dreamweaver/Flash), as well as HTML/CSS. I have experience updating online shops for Teleflora using the MyTeleflora online website manager.
I am from the United States, however I am currently located in Australia.
I produce mixed media work in various mediums, including painting and printmaking, and sell my items in my online shop and at occasional art festivals and events. I have shown my work at various galleries in the Pittsburgh area. My work can be viewed at www.quantumseedling.com
I am available for commission for original artwork, illustration, or graphic and web design services.
