I graduated from Skidmore in May, 2017 with a B.S in Studio Art, Magna Cum Laude with Honors in Art. After graduation, I moved back to my New York City home in the heart of Greenwich Village. I am producing art in shared studio space in the Flatiron District, as well as working as a part-time museum educator and temporary project assistant with a temp agency. I am also pursuing a certificate in Architecture and Interior Design Studies at Parsons School of Design in New York City to expand my creative career prospects.
As an artist, I produce unique paintings, drawings, and fine art prints to exhibit in local galleries and to sell online. As an educator, I lead school and camp groups on informative art-history-based tours of the museum and plan, organize, and teach art activities for childrenâ€™s groups. As a temporary project assistant, I help Human Resources departments during recruitment season; coordinate interview process between hiring manager and candidate; check candidateâ€™s references; and organize candidate files and create welcome packets.
Significant academic events at Skidmore:
When I transferred to Skidmore my Sophomore year, I became a member of Pro Arts Club. I created plans for a mural for a childâ€™s advocacy center in Ballston Spa in Fall 2014. The project was featured in a short film produced by Skidmoreâ€™s Office of Communications that semester
During my Junior year, I was the Case Gallery Manager. I organized and planned â€œPRINT WEEK,â€ a week long show dedicated to displaying and selling original works by over twenty printmakers in October, 2015.
I studied abroad Abroad in Florence, Italy at the Lorenzo Deâ€™Medici Institute in Spring 2016. I was selected to exhibit in their annual juried exhibition â€œArt is in the Square 2016.â€
During my time at Skidmore, I was featured in numerous group shows around campus. I exhibited in the Schick Galleryâ€™s annual â€œJuried Exhibitionâ€ Spring 2015 and Spring 2017 semesters. I was featured in the â€œStudent Art in the Libraryâ€ exhibitions Spring 2015, Fall 2016, and Spring 2017 semesters. My work was also shown in a week-long Case Gallery solo show in March, 2017 titled â€œReflections: Cinque Terre.â€
