Home Sweet Home

Here's an illustration I created for Middle Tennessee State University's Honors College. The cover story addresses how this institution helps home-schooled students to transition into a university setting. A special thanks to Sherry Wiser George for a very fun assignment.

Living Local Exhibit

With eyes cast towards my Hudson Valley community, I painted some little pieces dedicated to it’s many charms. They’re up at Taste Budd’s Cafe in Red Hook through January. As an introvert, I live a little too much in my own head - contemplating big thoughts, ideas, and dreams. Given this, it’s very easy to take my environment for granted. I consistently come back to the theme of community in art - because it reminds me of all the wonderful things right before my eyes. Drawing local landmarks is a way of contemplating why they are so special. For the viewer, I hope these pictures bring out some nice memories, and frames these places in a fresh light. If you live in the area, I hope you'll check out the exhibit!

Loomis Chaffee

Loomis Chaffee is an excellent boarding school located in Windsor, Connecticut. These illustrations appear in their magazine, accompanying a story about dorm curriculum. The article touches on issues students face, such as ethics, health and safety. A special thanks to art director, Patricia Cousins for a super-fun assignment.
