Bio

Hello, my name is Joshua Smith and I currently live in Brooklyn, New York. I graduated high school with a high school degree during the summer of 2018 and I’m currently attending New York City College of Technology. I decided to major in Communication Design because, throughout my life, I’ve been using a lot of editing programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, Camtasia, and many more programs. I joined this program in order to improve my work and turn my hobby into an official career. I’m not sure what field I want to focus in but I’m open to learning everything I can to be the best possible artist I can be.

My journey as an artist began with drawing and painting during my early years as a child. I was inspired by my friends, family, and teachers who encouraged me to keep creating different types of artwork. Eventually, as I got older, I introduced myself to YouTube and I taught myself how to create YouTube videos and Graphic Design with many types of computer programs and I fell in love with it. Now during my early college years, I decided to pursue art as my career and I plan to keep going until I reach my goal.
