One-woman art house in an ever-changing media landscape.
If I had to recount my earliest years as a creative I would start with After School Matters. As a teenager this apprenticeship program opened the doors to a world of art and media. I was an athlete then, but I reveled in the new world of new media. This was a good time to be coming of age as an artist. Commonplace technology exploded. Social media took over and tools for creative expression were becoming more accessible than ever. I first studied the fundamentals of design. Graphics led me to photography, and the rest as they say is history.
In 2013 earned my B.A. from Bradley University with “Applied Excellence” in Interactive Media. I spent a semester in Hollywood taking classes from working professionals in Directing, Post Production & Editing, and Line Producing, then returned home to Chicago and immersed myself in my rediscovered home environment. Today, a freelance media designer, I produce photography, video, graphics, and animation for small businesses and artists alike. From concept to delivery, I tackle projects of all scales and formats. I’m a one-woman art house in this ever-changing media landscape.
Produce great work that matters. Sweat Local.
I firmly believe in supporting my local economy, and believe that immersing yourself in community benefits both yourself and those around you. To Sweat Local, or to invest your time, energy, and value in the community, benefits all and breaks down the barriers between me and you. I’m proud to serve my community and produce great work that matters.
From volunteering with a local non-profit arts organization (Northwest Arts Connection) to building a woman-owned socially-conscious room escape company (Escape Artistry), I take care to sweat local.
