2021 Collaborative Grid Project in Cyrillic  Together We Can Do More 

The nonprofit organization called(no name) Art Group hosts creative online exhibitions to raise awareness about significant world issues. In this project, 25 artists were invited to create a piece of a puzzle on the theme of Unity. Based on the notion that no matter where we are, who we are, or what language we speak, we really are all connected—and together, we can do more. I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute my sqquare, #19, based on visual geometry and mandalas. This is a link to the project.

Adobe Infographics in the Classroom • June-July 2018

Working with Adobe Illustrator to create the infographics and Adobe Spark to document and reflect on the process, this is a basic skills course about information hierarchy as a visual illustration of data. This is a link to my Adobe Spark Journal. Additionally, the course covered using grids, negative space, visual balance and color in this context. The assignment was to create an infographic based on informaton about Social Media usage. This is a link to my version of Assignment 1. The second infographic assignment was about children's environmental health and included a photographic background. I chose to include a graphic device framing each statistic rather than a representational vector icon. This is my version of Assignment 2.
