I AM AN ARTIST
The Summer of 2016 I interned under muralist Rahmaan Statik, Chicago's best kept secret in visual art, for the Rosemont Mural Project. There I conceptualized and painted a variety of large scale murals that would curate to the town of Rosemont. Out of the three concepts pitched to the mayor mine was chosen.
The album artwork I created for music artist Kryptogram on his newest song, ‘Idea of You,’ had over 65k+ plays on Soundcloud within four months.
I pitched three concepts capturing the RLM Media brand, then created a life size mural that was chosen for the office headquarters located on Michigan Avenue.
I graduated May of 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Creative Advertising Art and a Minor in Marketing from Columbia College Chicago. I have learned how to Art Direct cohesive campaigns, sharpened my photography and increased my design skills in Photoshop, Lightroom and Illustrator.
I AM A BLOGGER
In my free time, I further involve myself in art by becoming the artwork. I work closely with photographers in the art direction and styling. I have modeled for over 30 photographers from Chicago, Phoenix, Seattle and Los Angeles. This includes working with the talented Brando, Jay Lorenzo & nationwide music artist ZHU.
I was interviewed for Columbia College Chicago's Tumblr page about one of my collaborations with photographer, Diante Thomas. It catches a glimpse of my process.
My monthly blog, located on Medium, is an open journal of a model creating art to defy the standards of woman.
