This first week I looked for a job to apply for in Cedar City.  What I found is there are not any at the current moment.  So next week I will have to broaden my search to outlying areas.

Checked with the CPVA department to see if there were any continuing positions for design.
There are no positions available.

Applied for job with SUU financial aid department
postion already filled

Applied for design position with JJ Cole Designs
Haven't heard back yet

 Artist Statement 
     I am a designer, varied and lighthearted.  My work is very process oriented.  I work with sculpture, drawing, painting, and digital media.  My work is intuitive and adaptable.  My work is both technical and effervescent in nature.  When possible my work can be playful.  Design is my passion.  I view design as an important tool of communication as well as personal visual inspiration.
