About Me

Emma Mathes
artist, designer, tea enthusiast

 

I am a recent graduate of the University of Texas at Dallas with a B.A. in Arts & Technology and a minor in Visual Arts. I have a passion for all things design and focused my studies on digital art, graphic design, and front-end web development (though I always strive to learn more). I love to draw and visually communicate ideas, and hope to launch my career in a fast-paced environment where I can make creative contributions both individually and as part of a team.

During my time at UT Dallas, I illustrated the book Healing Hope: Through and Beyond Cancer by Dr. Wendy Harpham, which is now available through Amazon. I also worked as a Graphic Designer for the UT Dallas Honors College, created original comic strips for the UTD Mercury newspaper, and participated in independent studies in Web Design and 3D Design. As part of my Senior Honors Capstone project, I worked on preproduction and illustration for my upcoming webcomic Red Sun at Morning. I was a National Merit Scholar and earned Magna Cum Laude, Collegium V Honors, and Major Honors upon graduation.

My skills include designing in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign, as well as building responsive websites with WordPress, CSS, and HTML. I am highly detail-oriented, a fast learner, and a firm believer that any problem can be tackled given enough tea.
