A local elementary school wanted a mural in their library meant to inspire multi-cultural exploration through books.This 6 ft high, 18 ft long mural is now installed in the reading room, inside the library. All finished elements were created in Adobe Illustrator, but the concept art was hand sketched using a gray-scale set of markers. The artwork depicts a stairway of books coming down from a glacier into a fantasy land where children play with different books and the stories of the different cultures, six books are strewn throughout this land, African, Australian, Asian, European, Hispanic and Native American, and from each of these books, characters and animals emerge from their pages to interact with the children.

A few examples of the concept development. Not all were used in the final product.
A view of the final installation:
Darden Architects has given me many opportunities to render their projects and designs. This is a small sample of the renderings I have worked on/created that I am able to share.
My position as the graphic designer & marketing coordinator means I need to create a diverse span of info graphics for the firm. Some of these are among my favorite designs thus far.
My job also allows me to create graphics for social media and 'save-the-dates' for in-house events.
