I am a seasoned artist looking for a position that will enable me to apply my education, artistic skills, and years of studio experience. I have worked in several places from Los Angeles to Vancouver, Montreal, Austin, and Atlanta. I am eager to step up to the challenge of becoming better at the things I am passionate about: creating artwork, sharing ideas, learning new things, and working with others who are just as enthusiastic.
I am able to relocate to wherever the job site may be on relatively short notice, within reason of course!
