Angelique comes from what she likes to call “The Dirty Southwest”. Upon her high school graduation, Angelique completed her first summer internship at a prestigious Graphic Design company in El Paso where she gained plenty of technical and business experience. She then went to Los Angeles to receive her A.A. in Graphic Design from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising where she added to her resume by being an intern for the school’s publications department.
Realizing she still wanted to learn more, Angelique attended New Mexico State University to get her B.C.M. in Animation and Visual Effects in their Creative Media Institute. There, she connected with many talented film makers who gave her the opportunity to also gain knowledge on set and in post production.
While Angelique is an individual with many talents such as video editing, locations managing on film sets, logo design, social media and more, her main focus lies in Key Art and Motion Graphics.
