Laurissa Hughes' Summary

I have wanted to be an artist as far back as I can remember, and when I received my BFA in 2D Animation in 2009 that dream started to become reality. I have worked in animation and illustration, and my art has been shown in art shows in Denver, including a solo exhibition.

My main interest is Storyboarding, and I would love to find a job that helps me follow my creative passion.
