As an artist, I explore and create a dynamic visual between people, objects, prompts, space and text within a given location. My work focuses on sculpting and creating performative environments to foster and dive further into the script aiding in solidifying deeper character connections. My work largely stems from Theatre Performance but over the past few years I have been working in Film. Having had multiple positions within the Art Department I am confident in my abilities as a designer to have your script come to life. Let me show you what I am thinking, let's create together!
