Dreya's Portfolio A Unique Design Experience

This is my family.


This is my family. They are a major part of who I am. We like to have fun and we like to dance. Interesting fact: We are all artists of different mediums.

Personal Logo - How this came about ... Well, my nickname is Happie. I feel like my life changed drastically when the three loves of my life were born. This is when I truly became Happie in 1997, 2000, and 2005 when I became a #mom. I had 2 boys (baby blue and one girl hot pink). These have been my favorite colors ever since. I also like to design with lines and shapes. I like the Noteworthy and Optima fonts. All of these things helped me to create this logo that reflects me and my personality and my wonderful life of love with my precious family.
I graduated with a Digital Art Degree from AIU in 2009.
My real name is Andrea, but my close friends call me Dreya and/or Happie. My classroom name and character is happieTeach. She is branded and has a YouTube, Facebook, Behance, Google Community, and various other social media accounts. This makes teaching fun because the character is an interactive part of my classroom, presentations, and my personality.

My Motto is ... "I am happieTeach. I teach design by day and fight crimes against design by night. Kind of like that masked superhero, only my weapon is Adobe and a Mac." :c)

I have been a graphic designer since 1996. I have always loved photography, color, art, and design for as long as I can remember.

My husband and I have a Photography and Design business. My husband does professional photography and I do professional graphic design. I do photography to capture family memories and fun. My favorite things to photograph is my family, babies, faces, model homes, colorful stuff, and food. I like capturing food because of its beauty and its colors.

We also have a food blog on Facebook and Instagram. Check us out below.
