My educational background receiving my BFA from Ohio Wesleyan University with concentrations in Printmaking, Ceramics, Figure Drawing and Jewelry Metals has uniquely prepared me with extensive design experience. My cross discipline study and dedication has taught me much about universal visual design, as well as, the importance of exemplary craftsmanship. Furthermore, my study directly under the Director of the Ross Art Museum through a Gallery Management course has given me considerable experience handling and displaying fine art. I have cataloged and handled both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional works in the permanent collection and in installation at the Ross Art Museum. I have installed and assisted in the design of over ten gallery exhibitions, including a solo exhibition of my own work at the Werner Gallery. I have worked on the preparations of an Iron Pour, assisted in that pour, and installed and directed a satellite gallery of iron sculpture produced from said pour the subsequent year. I have met with visiting Artists and Board members at galleries. My interest in textiles has also lead me to volunteer at the Virginia Quilt Museum, under its Curator, working on cataloguing their private historical collection and designing installations. I served on the Ohio Wesleyan Art Department Student Board from 2015-2016 and served as the Chair from 2016-2017. I served as Co-Chair of the Ohio Wesleyan Art Departments 2017 Senior Show “Refractions,” exhibited in the Ross Museum. I also served as the Co-Chair of the Ohio Wesleyan Art Departments Spring Show in 2016.
