DrawingsIn this gallery you will find a collection of drawings I have done either for class or on my own time, whether for pure enjoyment or for commission work. I use acrylic paints and normally sit on the floor as I work – talk about professional!
Graphic & Web DesignThis is a collection of work I have done for various freelance clients, whether friends or family or past employers. In this album you will find a variety of business cards, flyers, branding packages, web design, and more.
Wildlife Appreciation Colored Pencil SeriesThis is part of a series of 12''x8'' colored pencil drawings of different parts of wildlife that I have encountered personally. The purpose of these drawings is to highlight the beauty and typically unseen little details found when wildlife is viewed very closely. I have kept the identity of the natural object hidden, as to leave it up to interpretation to the viewer. 2012.
Spirit Fitness MarketingMy role as the Graphic Designer for Spirit Fitness had me creating functional marketing materials, photoshopping fitness equipment, and assembling booths and machines for trade shows and conventions across the nation.
Endangered Species Colored Pencil SeriesThese drawings are part of a 3 part series focusing on endangered plants and animals found in the three locations I have lived throughout my life – Canton, MI, Peoria, IL, and Des Moines, IA. The point of this series is to make the viewer aware that beautiful, incredibly unique endangered species are not only found in areas like the Amazon rainforest, but closer to home in North America's Midwest region.
Pink Family Christmas CardsEver since I was 14, I have been hand-drawing my family's Christmas cards each winter with Prismacolor colored pencil. My mom and dad then print them off, glue them on card stock, and mail them out to our loved ones to have a truly special hand-crafted card.
PaintingsIn this gallery you will find a collection of paintings I have done either for class or on my own time, whether for pure enjoyment or for commission work. I use acrylic paints and normally sit on the floor as I work – talk about fancy!
Proximity Senior Thesis Art ShowFor my senior thesis in 2013 at Drake University, me and 3 of my colleagues collaborated to put on a formal art show called Proximity. The theme or Proximity was about bringing the viewer to a heightened awareness of the subject, whether it was via the subject matter, texture, surroundings, etc. It was a massive success!
