A sneak preview of my current project: An illustrated reflection on place, pattern, and people as seen through the vehicle of running. The book follows a runner through her morning loop, and in the process observes the transition of seasons, the humanity of her fellow runners, and the release of both mind and body found in the running practice.
The entire work can be seen in May as a part of the SVA MFA Illustration Thesis Show!
Spirit Animals is a body of work examining the intersection of animal totoms with the modern world. The work is compiled into a book for the School of Visual Arts MFA Illustration "Book Show".

On August 21st 2015 ISIL launched chemical weapons into the Syrian town of Mare. The New York Time profiled a family whose home was hit directly. This piece is my attempt to visualize and as a result better conceptualize the depth of terror and suffering effecting the citizens of Syria.
