About Me

Elesha Hutson is a freelance graphic designer. She began at the Art Institute Online in 2009 and transferred to the Fort Worth campus in 2011 after moving from Arkansas. She was working towards a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design; however, she has not yet completed her degree due to personal reasons.

She has since learned more about web design and development, illustration, and photography from various online "schools" and tutors such as Udemy, Skillshare, David Molinar, and Brad Hussey. While these are not traditional learning methods, Elesha feels that she has learned more from these (and figuring out things on her own) than she learned during her time at the Art Institutes.

Elesha has worked part-time as a designer since 2013, and as a freelancer since 2014. She is currently seeking new learning opportunities along with new clients. When she is not designing or learning new techniques, Elesha enjoys binge watching Doctor Who on Amazon.
