I have a BFA in Game Art & Design. I'm in love with traditional media and adore doing portraits. I'm pretty good at designing print media (business cards, brochures, post cards, etc) and despite my negative experience at my last job, I at least walked away with a new found love for printing.
I'm also really passionate about clean, effective design. I love developing logos and professional images. I have done several webpages and web sites, too.
I'm a pro-bono web admin for a Bradenton/Sarasota FL non-profit drug recovery organization, Twitch's Transitional Recovery Homes (ttrh.org) where I keep the website updated, run the blog, and keep up with social media for the organization's founder. I am in-progress on the logo redesign for TTRH.
Prior to that, I worked with another local FL non-profit, an animal rescue called Rescuing Unwanted Friendly Fidos (ruff.petfinder.com). I created a logo for the organization and redesigned the web page - the founder is incredibly busy, however, and hasn't been able to update the page. I have the work hosted here: kristinbowles.com/testsite/RUFF/
My Dream Job? Would be to keep doing things like this, but for companies or individuals who would put me on a payroll. I only do pro-bono for non-profits, because I don't want to stagnate and I believe in the power of generosity and charity.
I graduated with a Geography Degree and a minor in Geographic Information Systems (GIS). My last two years of interning was with the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
I love natural resources and conservation and I would absolutely love to apply my passion of GIS to them. GIS is a program used on the computer that can manage a wide range of data and then take the data to be viewed spatially for understanding trends or researching different areas! Some types of data that have been mapped, types of soils, elevation, consistency of crimes in cities, species tracking, transportation, population, etc.! The list can go on forever I think.

I am a lawyer. I went to law school because I loved being a student (it is a great life) and I always found the law interesting. However, I graduated a year after "9-11" and as we all know, the world changed.
I do not necessarily want to practice law, and I have often wondered "If I could do anything....
I love nature and animals, so if I could do anything I would have a farm. (Probably the romantic notions of a city born girl but I'm okay with that.)
