About Me

I am a sophomore animation major with a graphic design minor at Bradley. I wish to take my degree and dreams west after graduation in hopes of finding a job in animation doing something that centers around my passion for art and creativity. Formerly, I was exclusively a graphite and colored pencil artist, but with the help of a new laptop and professors to point me in the right direction, I have quickly expanded my talents to digital art as well. I currently love using the Adobe Illustrator software and I am excited to learn even more in the next two years here. My aspirations are high, and one day I hope to reach great heights.

Featured Projects


The Call

The Call

A Single Man, one of my favorite films, is very artistic and moving. I wanted to capture even just a little of director Tom Ford's brilliance in a piece I made this year in Illustrator. The phone call depicted here is the start to a very emotional scene.

Hot Rod Shakedown 2018

Hot Rod Shakedown 2018

I was asked to make postcards, t-shirts, and posters for this event in the summer of 2018. The car show benefited Second Chance for Pets and it was a good opportunity to make something people could see and even wear.

Charles Aznavour

Charles Aznavour

This rendering of the late Charles Aznavour, once coined as the Frank Sinatra of France, was a commission to commemorate him due to his recent passing. It was made in Illustrator, and Charles is rendered in greyscale with a Paris skyline backdrop to bring everything together.

The sophomore animation class has been tasked with creating fun and exciting animations to present in the DOME Planetarium. Each student has worked to make a 30-second to 1.5 minute animation using the Adobe Creative Suite. The animations will show at 12:15, 1:45, and at 4:00pm on Saturday, April 27th.
