Terri Shay has considerable professional experience in the illustration and graphic arts, which has served as a valuable resource in developing particular expertise and skills that can be applied to a professional situation and in designing and freelancing. Below, she shares why she enjoys doing her work.
What do you love about your job?
The first thing I love about doing Illustration and design is that it is creative. I also love it when I see people happy, and I feel like I have helped. It is nice to be able to work on projects that may be unique to a business or an entrepreneur starting up a new business because I like to make things look fresh and professional.
Who inspired you to start your own business?
I watched my dad work for a big oil corporation growing up, and he seemed stressed. Things shifted and changed when he decided to start his own small business out of the house. He seemed like a completely different guy. He was happy, he enjoyed being around his family, and he choose his own kind of work.
