jack of all trades, master of SOME
Like so many CSUEB students, I am a transfer student who previously pursued a different major. I started college with a desire to be a traditional 2D animator, or to pursue the sciences (biology specifically). Over time, this grew and evolved into my love for Multimedia, specifically within photography and illustration. I think my earliest influence in terms of photography is Ansel Adams. From a young age I was extremely interested in photography, and this is one of the first artists I was shown.
His work with wildlife photography is remarkable and truly inspiring to see. I hope to eventually have my wildlife photography featured in national geographic.
Another influence in terms of illustration and graphic design is the work of Teagan White. Her work combines detailed yet stylized illustration with typography to create a unique product different from mainstream design.
This final quarter at CSUEB has definitely pushed me further than I realized I could go and helped me greatly improve my work as a Multimedia major. I’d like to personally thank Suzy for being a supportive and innovative teacher with unique ideas personalized to each student, as well as my classmates for helping to critique and improve my work.
