WHO ME?

I guess it starts here...
As a child, I was constantly getting in trouble for two things: never doing the dishes and hiding in my closet after bedtime to read books and magazines. While I eventually learned to clean, as adults do, I never got over the thrill of turning the glossy pages of Vogue and Vanity Fair or of beginning a new chapter in a well worn library book. My passion for image and text followed me across the country from my hometown near Dallas, TX to Columbia College in Chicago where I graduated with a BA in Creative Writing. Writing, however, satisfied only half of my heart. I soon realized that I wanted to be the person designing the pages, not writing them.

Which led to...
I created Indigo Meets Violet as both a way to categorize all of the images I found so inspiring, and as a daily exercise while I slowly learn the basics of graphic design. I was obsessed with reading other's blogs (check out my Love List!) and one day had the epiphany: Hey, I can totally do that! I'm no professional, but I believe a lot of people can relate to that. 

And now...
I started school at UW-Milwaukee in January of 2012 to pursue a BFA in Graphic Design. I've decided it's better to start all over and work hard for what I want than to be miserable doing what I don't love. It's scary and overwhelming and I'm about 92.5% sure that it's completely worth it. 98% on a good day.
