I graduated in May 2018 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University. Since graduation I have studied at the Illustration Academy in Kansas City, Missouri, and went on to be an artist-in-residence at Trestle Gallery in New York City, New York for six months. I have a passion for illustrating, animating, visual storytelling, taking/editing photos and thinking creatively. I am proficient in Photoshop and Adobe Creative Suite. My work has been recognized by Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, and Scholastic. My client list includes Carlson Wagonlit Travel, The Nature Conservancy, The Spruce, The Balance, Tripsavvy, ThoughtCo, Lifewire, The Commonwealth Times and Virginia and California Public Libraries.
