I am an artist, designer, and video production specialist focusing on user oriented design with a combined 10 years of experience in studio art, digital design, and arts administration. Using my skills in fine arts, graphic design, and curation, I have produced commissioned work for the W. K. Kellogg Foundation; worked as a mosaic artist at Cheryl Hazan Mosaics; and served as a curatorial assistant at the Roger Brown Study Collection in Chicago. At my previous position as a Video Production Specialist at Squarespace, I designed mock sites, created artwork, and designed motion graphics as well as wrote, recorded, and edited videos that onboarded customers to the site’s various platforms.
As a fine artist, I am motivated by the idea of empathy. By portraying first person reactions to real-world struggles such as poverty, disease, violence, and immigration, I create pieces that explore different ideas of identity, borders, and kinship to inspire wonder and social action. My themes and approach lend themselves to collaboration, and I am looking forward to working with other artists on dynamic, socially aware, creative projects.
