2020: Artist Year in Review

What a ride! Most of us thought 2020 was going to be a year of leveling up for our personal and professional goals. Instead, we all know what smacked us straight in the face – Covid! No conventions or festivals, no professional retreats, no in-person networking... Thousands dying. A life of quarantine, masking up, and staying as healthy as we can.

It was a long year.

Although 2020 wasn't the year we thought it would be, I have been able to strengthen myself, my relationships, my artwork, and have learned more about my artistic goals. From here, let's take a look at some of my favorite projects and artistic achievements from 2020:

2020 Achievements

Coming in 2021

  • Brand New Shop Launch – Commission Slots, Prints / Stickers, Licensing, & More! (Spring)

  • Illustrated Vinyl Murals (2) for Shenandoah University (Spring/Summer)

  • 'A is for... Awesome!' Children's Book (Summer 2020)

  • New art! & More!

I hope that 2021 finds everyone happier, healthier, and remaining safe. Hopefully, we will all receive more opportunities to grow and build our communities back. better. More art coming, always.
