This is a collection of personal projects I've done to practice my skills and satisfy my curiosities.
MY SWISS ADVENTURE
Grüezi! For my final semester of required co-op at the University of Cincinnati my goal was to work abroad. With much perseverance, I did it! To catalogue my thoughts and experiences I created a blog-like webpage. Check out my musings on these experiences by clicking on the button below!
ARTIST IMMERSION PROGRAM
University of Cincinnati - Study Abroad 2014
This was a two-week study abroad program in the Lazio region of Italy. We stayed at an agriturismo just outside of Torre Alfina and hiked to farms in the area to paint. I learned about composition, patience and so much about color. By the end of our trip, mixing paints to create the colors I was seeing was much easier. We also visited other beautiful places in Italy. These include Rome, Florence, Orvieto, Lake Bolsena, and Civita di Bagnoregio.
primed canvas, oil paint, charcoal
I enjoy sketching because it helps me to remember places or objects much better than if I just took a photo. This is especially important to me while traveling.
RENDERING A PHOTO
