I am a licensed cosmetologist/hairstylist, in New York, New Jersey, and Virginia, and I have worked in a salon environment for thirteen years. I worked my way up the ranks, having dabbled in just about every facet of the beauty industry. As an artist & a Gibbs College graduate, I learned a variety of graphic elements. I covered theory and elements of design, drawing principles, typography, computer graphics, multimedia, and animation. Done some photo-editing, and am an amateur photographer. Also, write copy (quotes) 'to be' in greeting cards once copyrighted.
