Summary

I’m a 2015 graduate of Azusa Pacific University with a BFA in studio art and a minor in English. My work is very detail-oriented and narrative; it ranges in style from cartoon to photo-realism, and in medium from watercolor to digital. My interest is in illustration, animation, background and concept art, adolescent and children’s literature and book publishing, and photography. However, I am interested in any art-related opportunity. Right now I am looking for a paid internship or job that will help me get a foot in the door.
