My Bio
Hey

My name's Adam, I recently graduated Roanoke College majoring in Fine Art as well as minoring in Education, receiving a Collegiate Professional License to teach. I graduated with Honors in the Art major. I have worked in artistic fields my entire life and am proficient in oil painting, drawing, pixel art, sculpture, and digital artwork. I have worked contractually and as a freelance agent creating artwork for various independent game companies and have also worked with commissions. I am familiar with other kinds of painting and crafting as well.

If I had to describe myself, I would propose that I am an imaginative, adventurous, and creative person. I strive to be the best that I can be in all walks of life, whether it be working with students, creating artwork, playing soccer, weight training, etc. I want the quality of my work to reflect the amount of care and forethought that I put into it, and I want to showcase myself as a strong, knowledgeable, and responsible young adult. I have multiple roles in leadership and management, having founded and ran the Roanoke College Men's Club Soccer team from 2013 - 2016, and I have also worked in several other leadership roles in my college. I have good experience working with others and managing business-related affairs.


I love all forms of art, and I love to paint, send me a note if you want to know more!

This is the conclusion I came to this week. Wednesday, I was in a car crash that could have been much, much worse than it was. Thankfully, I escaped with barely any injuries, and I am incredibly thankful for that and have realized how precious life is and how quickly it can be taken away. It was a horrifying experience, and yet it served to show me that we all need a wake-up call every now and then. As for an update on me; I'm currently attending college majoring in Art and probably getting a degree in education so I can teach art as well as create it. I love helping people and bringing my influences to others, so I feel as though that will

I really don't ever update my deviantArt ever, do I? I've been so busy with life and art and sports and what not that I just don't normally pay much attention to this place, so for all those who've favorited my stuff, watched me, and commented on my art, thanks! I've currently been working on a large batch of pixel arts that I should finish in the next 34234234 years, given my working speed and time I have to actually work on them. I'm heading into my senior year of high school this year, and I'm really pumped. I turn 18 next month, I'm taking AP Art, my classes for the most part seem to be fairly easy, and I'm running Cross Country, so I'm

Happy Thanksgiving!

If you're American, then you're obviously aware of what today is. We're about to have a huge dinner at my Grandmaws. I'm going to eat until it hurts tonight. What are you guys thankful for?

being that this is the first time I've been on dA in months, I've got to discourse my sincerest apologies-- I feel terribly about not being able to respond to this in a timely manner. Thank you so much! Hope you are doing well!
