You may be wondering why the domain name of this blog is umm.therowlisons.com. It's because I have tried to write a few blogs in the past and have never really known what to say in them...so umm.
Made this Facebook banner for my wife's Jamberry group. Used the skills I have been learning about InDesign on Lynda.com, which is a great resource. I highly recommend checking it out. They offer online courses and tutorials for just about everything design, marketing, and business related. I have really enjoyed watching the videos. They instructors are very good and insightful.
I was born in Kansas in 1985. My family moved to Oregon shortly after I was born. I have always enjoyed art. When I was a child I loved drawing. In high school I took as many art classes that I could. During this time I realized that I had a special talent and ability to make art. I entered Oregon State University in 2004 with the intent of earning a degree in forestry. In 2006 I decided to change my major to art. It was one of the greatest decisions I have made in my life. I thrived as an art student. Through my art courses and instructors I discovered who I was as an artist. My identity as an artist is discussed in the Principles section of my website. In 2009 I received a BS in art from OSU. I currently work for a dental manufacture in Newberg, OR. Recently I started taking Adboe design courses in order to move into a graphic design position for my employer.
