“I went to art school and have a BFA in Film/Animation/Video. As an independent animator,  I am constantly exploring various ways of creating moving images and experimenting with strange materials and processes.

Growing up as an only child, I spent a lot of time engaging in any creative activities I could find. I particularly enjoyed molding figurines out of raw dough while my mother cooked.  Although my high school had passionate art teachers, the school’s funding didn’t provide for a thorough arts education.

At art school, I was very overwhelmed by how talented all my peers were. I started to learn where my strengths were and focused greatly on improving my weaknesses. What I loved most about being in such a creative environment, however, was the immense amount of support I received and how much I constantly learned about art and life from my peers and advisers. I’m thrilled to be a part of Art Prof and this growing community of supportive, creative, and diverse artists!”
