My name is Ellie Grover! I’m 18 and from Washington, California, and Illinois, depending on what part of my life you’re referring from. I was born in Washington, grew up in Illinois, and then traveled all around the United States before settling down in California for about five years. Just recently, I moved out here with a former partner of mine and now I’m learning how to live life on my own, hundreds of miles away from anyone that I know.
I really love art, as I’m majoring in graphic design. I enjoy creating things and absolutely adore the concept of color. Color theory is one of my absolute favorite things to study and explain to people. I’ve loved graphic design since I was young and didn’t realize that what I was doing was graphic design. Online, I always said that I was making “edits”. I would play around with GIFs and photos and make fun little projects of my favorite celebrities or characters that I roleplayed (yup, I was that kid). It made me so happy! It wasn’t until high school that I took an actual graphic design class and realized just how wide the world of graphic design is and how much of a career opportunity it is. Ever since then, I’ve been learning all I can and pursuing that field!
I have a cat named Figaro. He’s my ESA and he, fun fact, does not have any eyes! I love animals and he obviously is no exception. Before I discovered graphic design, I wanted to be a zookeeper. To this day, I still wouldn’t mind one bit if I were to become one, but math definitely isn’t something I’m good at, so I try to stick to art instead of biology.
Overall, I’d like to just say that I’m a creative person learning the ins and outs of being an adult. Can’t wait to keep learning!
