It began when I was a toddler — trying to figure out how to make my paper lizards actually stand up on four legs rather than lie flat on the table. Then I was building miniature models out of whatever I could get my hands on. At one point I remember making a scale replica of Epcot’s Future World entirely out of paper, and then creating a replica of a sarcophagus in middle school, and again the Helmet of Sutton Hoo whilst reading Beowulf in high school. We weren’t wealthy, so I often utilized resources that were recycled bottles, newspaper, aluminum foil, and even moss from the back yard.
That hobby that I devoted whole days to as a kid turned out to be something I could and wanted to pursue as a career. I graduated with a B.A. in Theatre with a focus in scenic design, and then utilized those skills to help other students with production design whilst earning my Master’s Degree in Film Production.
Below you can see a smorgasbord of props, concept art, original paintings, graphic design, costuming, and even a cake. I hope that it will give you a sense of what goes on in my whimsical imagination.
On another page, titled, “Hush” are stills from the movie that was my MFA thesis work in production design for the story that was written and directed by my incredibly talented friend, Whitney Clinkscales. Check it out.
