About Blue Creations
The mission of Blue Creations is:
Blue Creations is my small business based out of Port Orchard, WA. I enjoy making things for people, and I eventually decided to offer my creations to a much larger audience through this business in 2015.
I've enjoyed creating art my entire life. I have formal training in Fine Art, Media Arts, Animation, and Graphic Design. Due to my varied interests and the styles of art that I enjoy creating, I decided to create a business where I was able to offer all of the different services and collections of work that I design.
Through Blue Creations, I provide art classes, make art and other products to sell, accept commissions related to art or branding, and provide business coaching.
The name Blue Creations was inspired by my father. I created a character I named "Blue" when I was a high school student, and my dad liked it a lot. He always inspired me to draw and was my biggest fan supporting me by helping me get into art school. When I registered my business in 2015 I named it Blue Creations in honor of the support he showed me over the years.
Every day I learn something new. I'm excited about being able to serve my local area in this way!
