Brief Summary
I'm an artist, making art, taking photos. I love to read and write, and watch film. Seeking ways to promote and sell my work, and be helpful to others. I work hard, like to complete projects on time if not before. I learn new things quickly. I'm an introvert, which means I think about a project carefully and make sure the result is high quality. This is my first venture on to the Creative Finder.
