About Design World Studios:

I am a scenic designer and artist based in Raleigh, North Carolina. I graduated with a MFA in Theatrical Design in May 2019. I worked as a teaching assistant at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where I instructed college students how to create props and scenery for plays and musicals. I have even worked as a director, designer, and manager of children’s theatre.

I consider myself a well-rounded visual artist who uses a multitude of artistic skills to do my job, including drawing, painting, model-making, sculpting, drafting, carpentry, Adobe Creative Suite, and even printmaking. When I am not working, I enjoy reading, cooking, thinking about my work, spending time with my friends and family, and playing with my little poodle.
