Shelby Sprake

Design is my passion; it allows me to tell stories through unique and creative visual experiences. It’s an opportunity to learn, explore, and create, finding inspiration from the people and the world around me. I am very blessed to have the knowledge and skills to begin my career in a professional field that I truly love.
