Aaron P. Brown, Chicago, IL Member Since June 2010 Artist Statement "My current objective as an artist and designer is to embrace the relationship between art and technology, combining various creative outlets to produce new and innovative ideas and creative solutions through design. I have been drawn to art since elementary school. Early on, my knack for creative expression was noted and fostered by various art mentors and instructors in the Kalamazoo Public Schools system, then further enhanced through weekend art classes at the Kalamazoo Art Center. Later in Chicago, I received my B.F.A in Graphic Design, cum laude, from Columbia College. Along the way, I completed a web design certificate program at Truman College, where I was an active steering committee member for the school's web club."
