Fall Semester

Fall Semester 2015 flew by so fast, yet it was one of the most challenging semesters of my life.  I imagine this is only the beginning of kick ass semesters at Alverno College. #AlvernoStrong They are making us so strong here at this school. My public speaking is improving greatly and I am finding my voice.

This challenging semester was blessed with some incredible ART Projects in and outside of school.

Below and also in my album, Skool, you can see all of my completed work of this semester.

Projects included co-currating an exhibition with artist and professor, Dara Larson at Alfons Gallery located inside the School Sisters of St. Francis (27th & Greenfield, MILWAUKEE,WI)12036535_10207439420046570_2897646575802343376_n

I was also part of an exhibition where I drew a charcoal still life of my mom’s kitchen table, representing how she is on her way to reversing her type ll diabetes.

Work in Progress…..finished work in my album called Skool.
