University of Nebraska, Lincoln - 2004
BFA in Studio Art (Graphic Design Emphasis)

I make art because I want to create characters and tell stories. I am drawn to stories and lore in all forms – books, movies, video games, theatre, myths, and urban legends. Recurring subjects in my art include ghosts, girls, monsters, and animals, and themes of friendship and loneliness. I like to include bright colors and a sense of humor in my art and enjoy combining elements to humorous effect, such as badgers sporting fezzes or weasels wearing rocket packs. I am also drawn to urban decay, abandoned places, and ghost stories: people and places that are lost and forgotten. I create my work with cut, layered paper, which allows for a sense of texture and dimensionality. I live and work in Lincoln, Nebraska.
