i’ve been doing a lot of photoshopping / drawing in the past few weeks getting my portfolio ready for my big nyc interviews. (and one top secret thing that i mentioned before, and will keep updating you as information progresses.)



i’ve also updated to a new business card from one of the flowers i painted during textiles class. i’ve integrated the series into my potfolio as well, and my resume. which i’ll be posting here soon after a few more revisions.


i’m  here new york. so take a bite.
