The birth of AutumnSunRising Designs ~
I started out learning about the internet back in the "90's" through my first real experience with it - the WebTV. I created my very first email, learned about "surfing the www", about chat rooms in talkcity, as well as online email accounts through hotmail (my first web based email). Not too long after, I learned about "home pages" where I created my very first online presence with Geocities!
In turn I learned about HTML (hyper text markup language), also learned to type a heck of a lot faster! lol Learning to build websites, lead to paintshop pro - my FIRST REAL taste in graphic design and paint programs - I WAS HOOKED! like a fish on a hook! lol I upgraded when they upgraded, I joined communities or "groups" that taught you how to use the programs through tutorials (my first experience with tuts). It was SUCH an AMAZING experience (up till that point - age 24, I had NO clue what I wanted to do with my life, that gave me a taste of what I could do and what I have eventually come to learn what I REALLY TRUELY have a passion for - design!)
Since I was a kid, I LOVED taking pictures, but now I have learned how take and manipulate them, add to them, or create my own "images" through digital art manipulation and graphic design!
2008 - I signed up for college with Westwood College Online. I majored in Graphic Art/Multimedia Design, I was with them for a year and took a break. During that year, I learned SO MUCH more about the world of graphic design and design in general! I learned that it was/IS so much more than I had even fathomed!
I love the world of design; photography, graphic design, image manipulation, digital art and multimedia design as well as fine art!
With all that I have learned and continue to learn, it just fuels my passion for design even more - THIS is what I want and long to do with my life!
I have gone through many "business" names, none of which have become legal, but have settled on one that suits me best - because I was born in Autumn, along with the colors of the sky when the Autumn sun rises, (you could not ask for a more beautiful view) - not to mention it is UNIQUE - like me! lol So, AutumnSunRising Designs is born!
