'Dinners for Siblings' Personal Projects

These pieces were created as gifts for my brother and sister for the 2020 holidays. The idea was to create little moments of calm and coming together over food. They evolved into motion pieces designed to loop and continuously evoke quiet glows of happiness :)

'Shakespeare Online' Webisode Projects

Throughout much of summer, fall, and winter of 2020, I designed prop assets for

CenterStage in Lake Forests' Shakespeare Online series. I'm so saddened by how hard the theater community has been hit this year (HUGE musical and Shakespeare fan especially!), and so embraced the chance to help celebrate and share Shakespeare using a digital platform. The assets were then animated by the company's digital editor (I've added the animations to the below ones), and sprinkled throughout various Shakespearian monologues during the episodes.

'Sculpting Fire' Personal Project

The next few visual development pieces are for an animation project in progress. It was such fun looking at old candelabras for some 'Shakespeare Online' research, and I decided they looked liked mini towers and perhaps someone lived inside.

Thinking about it, I loved the metaphor of a little being going about their life and existing despite the fact that their home is continuously 'on fire.'
