travel frenzy!


Hi everyone! The lack of posts may be telling- I’m having a pretty great time traveling around! I was in Portland, OR for nine days and experienced some amazing food, places and people. It’s a great city- I’ll post some pictures soon! Now I’m in Cincinnati for a week. I’ve been quite busy working on these trips as well as staying on top of my own design work. Designs for my own show were due while I was in Portland, so if I wasn’t in the theater working on tech or exploring the city, I was drafting. It was my first time designing on the road and I learned a lot from the experience.

Now that all my designs have been turned in I plan to get back to regular posting. I have an art post planned, I just need to photograph it. I started a fun little project while I was in Portland and I plan on continuing it in Cincinnati- you’ll see soon. :)

Oh yeah, and that picture above is from me at the famous Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland. It’s a must-visit if you’re ever in Portland. It lives up to the hype!


the cirkus theatre project

i updated my portfolio with the project i worked on over the summer: the cirkus theatre project! it was sponsored by cirque du soleil and representatives from their montreal headquarters came to see the performance. it was so much fun, and i’m so glad i got the opportunity to work on it.

the young girl was played by my wonderful friend piper hayes. she choreographed the whole piece too. her costume was made by the super talented costume design and technology students at uncsa, and i hand painted each stripe! talk about custom made. it was my first experience designing a costume and i loved it! it was also my first time designing projections…check out a peek of them in the photo above!

see more photos and read about the full project and the rest of the design credits over here.
