Designer / Illustrator / Illustrator

Wendy Bazuta

Hello, my name is Wendy and I am looking to work as an Illustrator where I can use traditional art techniques and computer-based tools to create high-quality visuals.

I have been working in graphic design professionally since 2007 and have accumulated many useful skills such as a strong working knowledge of the Adobe Creative suite, composition and layout.

I am excited to take these skills and combine them with my self-taught artistic skills and grow as a Professional illustrator.
