Senior at VCU aiming towards being a struggling artist with a stable career. He’s been making art and creating since he was a child, but it’s been as of recent he’s been able to turn this passion into a career. He has done design work for non profits like RVA Affiliated, for management company Route Runnas, and local businesses like Richmond Young Writers. Being able to work with such a diverse group of clients, from creatives to businesses, has given Nijel amazing experiences with advertising and designing. When he isn’t doing work for others, you can most likely catch Nijel creating art for himself and making music.
