Believe it or not, I started designing websites back in the mid-90's. The 14-year-old version of myself got very interested in building a website on GeoCities (does anyone remember that?!) and I learned web design by hand coding HTML into the notepad app!
There have been a lot of twists and turns since then, but somehow, it led me back to web design.
As someone who has been creating all her life, I LOVE to support other creatives. And what better way to showcase your creativity than on a website tailored to you?
For a while I got really burned out on website design—it got super complicated to me when CSS entered the scene and I thought I was done with it.
I ended up with a degree in graphic design and did that for a few years. I never felt like I was a good enough designer though and ended up doing administrative work for the next ten years (because, oddly enough, I really enjoy that work as well).
I finally got fed up with the corporate world and decided to try start my own art business. While I did sell a few pieces, I didn't love that I *had* to sell them or I couldn't pay the bills.
Enter virtual assistance.
Through being a VA the last year and a half or so, I've learned a lot about my likes and dislikes, and reinforced that I still love design (and, clearly, color haha).
I was tasked with creating a Showit website for a client of mine and well, I fell in love with it!
So here we are, a far cry from the mid-90's, but back to website design. It's funny how sometimes life will lead you right back to where you started.
