Summary

I am a painter, illustrator and muralist working in St. Louis. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree (2012) from Hampshire College, with a focus in studio art and illustration.
--Muralist: I paint exhibit murals for the St. Louis Zoo. I have painted 10 original murals depicting the natural habitats of hellbender salamanders, caiman lizards, golden lion tamarins, and other glorious beasts.
--Illustrator: I am skilled with both traditional media (acrylic, watercolor, ink, oil) and digital media (photoshop). I make illustrations for stories, comics, and t-shirts. I am currently working on illustrating a fantasy graphic novel written by Nathan Anecone, titled The Calligrapher. For my college thesis, I wrote and illustrated a fifty page graphic novel titled Teletravel about the metaphysical paradoxes associated with teleportation.
--Painter: My work has been displayed in local gallery shows. I sell prints of my original work on my online Etsy shop.

--Art Instructor: Sept. 2012 to Aug. 2014. I taught classes for students ages 7 to 17 at the Pen2Paper art studio in Columbia, IL. Students in my classes learned how to draw animals and characters and how to compose visual stories and illustrate their own comic books.
