A collection of projects involving illustration in the form of vector graphics, digital drawings, pastels, collage and paint. 
Design, Theory, & Criticism project
A decorative letterform inspired by The Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript Gospel book written in Latin from the 9th century. The O acts as the base letter, filled with patterns that resemble southern Italian ceramic tiles, as well as an intertwining olive branch and chili pepper vine. As believed by the Catholics, the dove rests on the olive branch, symbolizing peace and forgiveness, while the cardinal is propped up on the pepper vine, representing the fire and vitality of the living spirit. The birds and their accompanying flora are depicting the duality of life; how it can be serene, but also very vivid.​​​​​​​
Internship projects at Dolce Press
I designed a mock-up wedding invitation to be used in the creation of possible future stationery suites. During my time as an intern I learned how to use illustration, typographic heirarchy and different font styles to create beautiful and sophisticated layouts.
A series of playful, punny greeting cards inspired by retro design elements such as bold outlines, simple shapes, and vibrant colors.
I developed proofs for a client’s business card and assisted the lead designer in coming up with a cute and cheerful design for her daughter’s birthday invitation.

Staged and photographed the studio’s recent and past works. Strengthened my ability to manage social media content by posting the photographs I shot on two of the studio’s instagram accounts.
Positano at Sunset - personal project
Oil pastel drawing of Positano, Italy. A beautiful, cliffside city on the Amalfi coast where I often find myself seeking adventure.​​​​​​​ I developed proposals for merchandise printed with the illustration to open doors for how drawings like this could be commercialized and appeal to a wide audience.
Design, Theory, & Criticism project
Lyric interpretation poetry book and poster, designed in the futurist style of Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. Lyrics from the song, "Chiaro Di Luna", by Italian singer-songwriter Jovanotti.​​​​​​​
Small scale drawings created with pen, marker, and watercolor.​​​​​​​
Large scale creations made mostly with ink and charcoal, the last one with mixed media.​​​​​​​
