As an undergraduate at Maryland Institute College of Art, I am currently majoring in illustration and concentrating in animation. When I am creating a new piece, I enjoy the process of researching and figuring out new ways to portray a concept. Usually, I draw my inspiration from my environment, especially in nature. It is easy to step outside, take a walk, and come back refreshed and eager to produce more art. I also read a lot to inform the pieces that I make. In general, I try to keep my mind and body active so that my imagination has enough fuel to run on its own. As a result, my work narratively ranges from the ordinary to the fantastical. Here are some of the few things I like to draw: trees, desserts, undiscovered magical beasts, and underwater dwellings.
