My name is Charles Hooks. I am an Artist and Graphic Designer currently residing in Baltimore, MD. I’m originally from Buffalo, NY where I have done many freelance design projects for various businesses, community organizations and individuals. My artwork has been displayed and sold at community functions there. Now I’m offering my artistic talent and vision to you via the web. In my graphic design work, I like to use clean lines and bold design to produce simplified, yet detailed images. My fine artwork can be described as using a combination of fine art and graphic design techniques to produce pieces that reflect positive and spiritual images, but also encourages people to reflect within themselves. I studied advertising art four years at the McKinley Vocational High in Buffalo, NY. There I learned the nuts and bolts of producing print ready art and layouts. I graduated with a diploma in Advertising Art. From there I went on to study at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and received a certificate in Graphic Communications from E.O.C. at State University of New York in Buffalo. Over the last 25 years, I have provided freelance art and design work for various organizations, businesses and individuals in Buffalo, NY.
