Artist Major: Illustration '22

Artist Statement:  I am an artist and illustration student based in Chicago, IL. I started with watercolor and gouache paintings while I was in high school in Edina, MN. Now I specialize digitally as well as pen and ink drawings. Artwork I enjoy the most are portraitures and character art of people and animals. I'm hoping one day my artwork can be used as concepts in books and/or movies to communicate stories.
