I was born and raised in the Chicago area and went to undergraduate school at Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota, which is algonquin for “land of the snow and butter sculptures” (just kidding, please don’t sue me). But seriously, there are snow sculptures for the winter festival and butter sculptures for the state fair. It is truly a wonderous place.
After that I went to Boston University for my MA in psychology. While Boston is a wonderful town, I found myself missing the midwest life. So I moved back to my homeland of Chicago and excited to kick off my career. My long term goal is to teach art or practice art therapy, but since that is going at a snail’s pace, I have decided to fill my days with “artsy fartsy” stuff. The result is displayed web page. I hope you enjoy.

I was recently accepted to Illinois State University for their MA in Art Education program and offered a graduate assistantship. I am super excited and cannot believe I might actually make a career out of this stuff. This website has been a wonderful way to keep me connected with the art community and inspired to create. Thank you!

Update! I just finished my program and am currently looking for art education jobs in the Chicago or Minneapolis areas. I am so excited to be moving forward and to be able to share my passion with others. Score for me!

Update! I am living in S. Minneapolis and teaching art to 7th and 8th graders. I love my job (as exhausting as it can be) and am happy to share the pieces I have made along my journey.
