I am available for commission, for hire, and for collaboration!

Like a true Gemini elder-millennial who has spent their entire professional life post-recession, I have a wide repertoire of skills and interests that I like to put to use. I’m also glad to travel! Some ways in which we could work together include:

Designer, Illustrator, Art Director

  • Projects range from poster design and event design, logo and visual identity, shadow puppetry and stop-motion animation, and more! See Posters & Commercial pages (but actually all the pages)

Teaching Artist

  • I am recognized as a Maine Arts Commission teaching artist and have taught in schools, non-profits, and institutions.

  • Topics could include printmaking, cut-paper collage, illustration, visual and personal identity, using storytelling as a tool for idea generation, community engagement projects, and more.

  • Collaborators include the Portland Museum of Art in Portland, ME; Berkeley Art Museum in Berkeley, CA; the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, CA; Figures of Speech Theater in Freeport, ME; Peavey Memorial Library, Eastport, ME; Cobscook Community Learning Center in Lubec, ME; and numerous public schools throughout the state of Maine.

Event Production & Creative Convenings

Creating & co-creating meaningful, participatory community experiences

  • I can help you produce your community event, creative fair, unique fundraiser, culturally infused staff retreat, etc.

  • Support is available from start to finish, from marketing & visuals to day-of logistics.

  • Event production examples: SPACE Field Day, York County Mini Maker Faire (can provide references on request)

  • Or bring Going For It to your community!

Project Doula (Project Management, Artist Assisting)

Let me help your project come to life!

Creative Facilitation & Brainstorming

Creating generative, collaborative spaces that integrate creative processes into all types of group work.

  • Integrating Arts & Cultural Strategy into social justice movement work.

  • Bringing creative process into traditionally non-arts spaces (community meetings, establishing budgeting priorities, municipal strategic planning, etc.)
