I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil. I love it! I'm currently taking college classes for various art mediums and skills and have been working as a sign artist for years. I've worked with pencil, colored pencil, ball point pen, illustration pens and paint pens.
From October 2012
As a sign artist, I'm responsible for making sure that all the items in the store have signs and that the signs are correct. This includes price verification, locating signs we may already have, and making new signs. Although
I'm a sign artist, I have lots of experience with customer service. I'm expected to do whatever it takes to give the customer what they want and I truly enjoy doing it. I have experience with looking items up on the computer;
finding out if we have those items; if we don't have the items, calling nearby Trader Joe's stores to see if they have the items; and locating and being familiar with the items in our store. I've been at this job for 2-1/2 years
now and I've learned quite a bit about art and communication of all kinds.
I helped bring the art in the store to a new level. I'm really great at lettering so my signs look very professional. I've raised the standard for future sign artists with my clean, concise style.
I demonstrate good compositional knowledge, efficiency, proactivity, communication skills, teamwork and friendliness. And I've had fun doing it.
