undergraduate projects


Sophie the vampire has just moved to a new dimension with her monster family, and she’s having trouble making friends. After seeing her strange clothing, spider backpack, and bringing her pet ghost into school for show and tell, her classmates don’t know what to think of her.

Sophie decides to throw a sleepover to try to make friends, but things go very wrong in Sophie’s haunted house!

Sophie’s Sleepover is a 32-page children’s book I wrote and illustrated for my undergraduate senior thesis project! The book took 3 months to create, and I’m very happy with the final result! The book will be on display from April 15th until May 14th at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, as a part of the 2016 Senior Exhibition. Opening reception for the show is April 15th from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM, so if you’re in the Milwaukee/Chicago area I would love to see you there!


This is my undergraduate thesis project on congenital heart defects. It’s in the art gallery at Arcadia through commencement on May 15th. All of the images were painted in Corel Painter with some elements in Photoshop.

The first image is a morphologically normal heart. The others show four complex congenital conditions: Tetralogy of Fallot, Persistent Truncus Arteriosus, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, and dextro-Transposition of the Great Arteries.

I’m so excited to be studying Medical and Biological Illustration at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine’s Department of Art as Applied to Medicine in August.
