My sister Abby had to interview an artist for independent art class so she chose me! The interview was simple, just the 5 W’s and the H. Below are my answers. So do YOU have any questions for me?? Ask anything!
Kelly Hicks, designer, thrifter, blogger, photographer, accessory-maker, wife, and papillon-owner
My day job is as a User Interface Designer at IBM. But my love is creating whether it be in the form of art, photography, design, or fashion. I am still discovering what my exact niche will be but so far I have enjoyed exploring all the possibilities. My most recent freelance projects were designing wedding invitations, photographing my first wedding, and re-designing a website of a non-profit organization. I am currently working on improving my web presence by redesigning my blog and portfolio.
I live and work in Tucson, AZ. I work the majority of the time from home so I recently moved my desk into my living room so I could breathe and look out the window at my lovely backyard. I am also in the process of creating a home studio space for my freelance work.
Whenever I can! Which can sometimes be A LOT. This is a hard question because if I am not creating I am thinking about it or researching it. That being said I do take time off to shop, run, dance, go out to dinner, and just spend time with my husband and friends.
Because I love it! There’s a sense of accomplishment when you have succeeded at creating because it’s not easy! It takes work, commitment, and time. But when the end result is successful it’s that much more rewarding.
That’s a tough one. I think how I accomplish what I do is a combination of hard work, the passion I have, the talent I was given, and the opportunities God has laid out in front of me. I truly believe the Lord moves me forward and my hope is that my love of Christ will shine through my work.
Now go ahead and ask me something!
