You're a curious little one, aren't you!

WHATA' YOU DO?

I am a one-woman-show who is damn stubborn to help others get ahead by creatively formulating cohesion, fluidity and clarity with their presence in the community.

SO, DO YOU HAVE CREATIVITY IN YOUR FAMILY?

With family members on both sides, strong in creativity, I have built quite the artistic streak. It has given me the  ability to grow up with a focus on my creativity and love for the outdoors. Finding my creative passions at that young age has given me the gift of wanting to share, collaborate and work with others seeking that support and influence in their growing business or creative project!

YOU'RE CREATIVELY PASSIONATE. WHAT ELSE?

So, as I mentioned, I am a lover of the outdoors. I wake up with anticipation to smell the morning air before the birds are up. I rejoice in the energy conjured by sitting around a smoky bonfire with friends. I love the feeling of wearing my jeans for 5 days in-a-row when I'm navigating the trails in the woods or getting my hands dirty in our garden. I like the feeling of wood dust on my clothes and stain on my hands from working in my wood-shop making jewelry for my other business. I bask in the sea of plants and flowers walking around plant nursery's...just because I can.

YOU'RE YOUR OWN BOSS AND YOU'RE SO YOUNG!

Yup! I couldn't be more PROUD and SCARED at the same time! It really sunk in when I got the "Why do you wanna' go to school for graphic design Hannah, EVERYONE and their Mom does that!". That came from a former boss of mine while working for her. Like most, I was pissed, hurt, annoyed and of course a little curious if she had a viable point. That being said, those feelings quickly turned into motivation and clarity that I was, in fact, making the right decision to pursue my creative career in college. I wanted to leave what I was doing to focus on school, build my strengths and learn how to get my hands dirty with what I needed to know in order to be my own boss at a rather young age! I have always been one that enjoys being the team leader and helping teach others what I know while learning what they bring to the table as well. A true lover of collaboration of minds!

That leads me to this. There are many, many, talented designers and creative minds around this globe. Honestly, I'm glad that I am amongst so many. It gives me motivation daily for the opportunity to stand apart when most people will feel threatened and not admit to it, jealous, but not show it and basically, fake it, until they "think" they make it.

So, cheers! To the people that come onto my path and are eager for a relationship that makes for a wonderful environment to educate one another, provide support and open, what might be, closed eyes to possibilities never thought of...that being, your business and project(s), creatively, moving to the next level!

SO WHO SAY'S YOU'RE A "GRAPHIC ARTIST"?

Well, technically, my diploma from Cape Cod Community College says I am a graphic designer. However, that's all just a piece of paper. So, I don't think you are truly an artist until your work shows for itself. Take a peek and you make that judgement for yourself!
