About the Artist
blue . . . . . but under that i'm just pink
There's really no excuse for this webpage. I had one once. An excuse I mean, but no longer. The truth is that this started out being a project for my Computer Design class in my first semester of college. I figured, since I have the URL anyway, I might as well just stick with it. No point in wasting what's perfectly good and expensive in any other capacity. Yahoo is all well and good, but doesn't allow entirely for some of the things I learned in class, and this is supposed to be a sort of artistic expression. And I'm artsy. So I just stuck with it. The current layout is due boredom with the old design which I had for a good year and a half or maybe it was 2 years.... It seemed like a long time anyway. So we have the new layout, which I named Big City. Can you tell I'm a sucker for rollovers? The design type is drawn from the Japanese manga "Chobits" because I think it's a wonderful way to express the busy-ness of a city and still keep it romantic. This way, things stay neat and organized and you can find your way around without getting too lost. Unless of course I want you to.
Let's see, something else about me. I'm a senior at Smith College, and originally from the Atlantic region of the US. I know that doesn't narrow it down much, but that's sort of the point. If you make your way around the page, you can find various links to my e-mail if you really need it. You've just gotta look. Think of it as a treasure hunt.
I've designed other pages online. Obviously the past versions of this one as well as 2 of my own pages on Yahoo that are abyssmal if I do say so myself. I was the web-page manager for the Smith Ice Hockey Club for a short while until I decided it was an under appreciated and overworked position. I also designed and kept up the Smith Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention web page for a year when I was running the convention. And for last year and this coming year I maintained and designed the regular SSFFS page as well.
Practically all images on this site were created, produced, captured, or played around with by me. I work on Adobe Creative Suite and Adobe Elements 2.0 while all rollover images are made through Image-ready, and there may be one or two things made in illustrator. Nearly all pages under the Smith URL were created with Dreamweaver, though a few were entirely hand coded (of this, I'm extensively proud) Including many in project 1 because dreamweaver is finicky about alignment and it bugs me to no end.
So go out there and explore the page. There's a few surprises hidden around. Take your time and have fun!
