A Tiny Sampling of My Work

About Me

Courteney Carr

Courteney Carr

In my first two years in college I earned an Associates degree in Japanese followed by my Bachelors in Fine Arts from Temple University, Japan Campus. I lived in Tokyo for five years, and recently have returned to California even stranger than when I left! I primarily focus on producing artwork, I have varied experience designing different UI (User Interface) experiences, testing products, and creating artwork for the corporate field. The best feature about me, or the worst, is that I am a severe workaholic. You want work done? Great! Give it to me! My freelance art commissions include comic pages, postcard illustrations, business card designs, logos, and website design. Currently I live in San Francisco with my cat and do QA testing and Tech writing at Net2TV in Redwood Shores.
