2. Elijah Kennedy
"Elijah possesses an exceptional degree of enthusiasm and ardor for life. This really translates into his work. Elijah is prone to noticing the little details and idiosyncrasies about life, and has a unique, characteristic way of amplifying them in his artwork so that they are able to be visibly recognized by others. Not only is he inspirational and a pleasure to be around, but he has a strong work ethic, and, if he is passionate about something, he will work tirelessly until he reaches a desired result. He is deeply creative, and so his best work is created when he is given the space and opportunity to allow for his ideas to become realized. However, he is also intuitive to other's opinions and desires, and he is able to benefit from a degree of constructive direction. He values honesty, because he cares as deeply about the outcome as he does the process. Elijah is truly multi-talented; regardless of the task at hand, he produces brilliant work. In addition to the wide array of artistic experiences gained from his degree from the highest ranked public art school in the United States (VCU), he has had professional experience with mural design, video and sound design, drawing and painting, illustration, and photography. Having known and worked with Elijah for six years now, I can with confidence say that he is an excellent individual to work with. If you are seeking an imaginative, innovative, quirky and professional individual to add to a project or team, Elijah will not disappoint, especially if he is given the opportunity to thrive in a setting where his sense of originality is understood, valued, and appreciated."
