I've never considered myself an artist, though people always try to convince me that I am. I just think of what I do to be more of a hobby and skill that I have developed due to my desire to know how things are designed and produced and I enjoy the process. Besides, "artist" sounds too pretentious - and I am anything but.
Because of my curiosity of design, I have dabbled in many different mediums, from digital to the tangible. I have spent a good many years in the graphic design world, pushing pixels around a screen, arranging them into pleasing images and layouts. But being more of a "hands on" person, I didn't find much reward in this field. I still love graphic design, but now use these skills more for personal projects.
My true passion is in creating actual items that one can hold. I love the many different moving parts that go into the production of a piece. From the early sketches; to the refined design; to creating prototypes and molds; to the casting, painting and finishing of the final product. There's nothing like holding a piece in my hands that was once just an idea in my head.
Though I am always working on new projects, I do also take on commission work. If you have an idea you think I'd be the right person for, drop by my business site and let's talk: www.sugarfrosted.biz
