I have been creative my entire life. But I found myself with a desire to get away from my IT job that had become a life sentence of, have you tried turning it off and back on yet. I took my creativity and started a small business creating personalized gifts and promotional items for businesses. While doing that, I found that as I was creating all of my own artwork and graphics that other small businesses and crafters were needing art as well. I took that opportunity to start selling my work. When I grew a small following in the T-Shirt community, I legally opened BPGD.
