Resume

I am a self taught artist looking for streams of income and opportunities to further my arts career. I make art on a daily basis, and am honing my skills while strengthening my style and voice. I have diverse skills in digital and physical media.

 

I went to college for Anthropology and Criminal Justice and finished my Bachelor's Degree in 2004. After working in the Criminal Justice field for a year, I worked as a massage therapist for 11 years. When the pandemic hit, I quit massage to pursue a full time job as an artist. More information about my previous work can be found on my LinkedIn page.
