I'm a freelance artist and designer. I am based out of the Rochester area, and I work with The Yards Collaborative Art Space in between commissions and an additional part time job. In 2008 I graduated with a BFA in Communications Design from Pratt Institute. My skills include: drawing, painting, book binding, graphic design, art direction, illustration, typography, mural painting, and sculpture.
