By way of introduction;

I am currently seeking full or part-time employment opportunities, and I would be delighted to offer you the broad extent of my abilities. I am a highly motivated individual and a graduate of Emily Carr University of Art and Design. I have a Bachelors of Fine Art, majoring in painting and drawing, with a minor in photography and print media including extensive knowledge of silkscreen, etching, lithography and relief printing. I have additionally spent ample time pursuing practices in sculpture, ceramics, mold-making, wood and metal fabrication, and am comfortable working with textiles, plaster, resin, concrete and more. Incorporated into every one of these areas of fine art is an in-depth knowledge of digital design. In my studio practice I combine traditional art methods with an extensive knowledge of digital photographic and illustration programs and techniques, overlapping and redefining works continually within countless material processes.

My research skills in extracting information, palette and pattern from the resources presented in my environment are unmatched. Through both academic and independent artistic endeavors I have honed the disciplinary skills whose magnitude allows application to a broad spectrum of tasks. I am diligent and determined, keenly seeking excellence in every arena in which I am involved. Subsequently, my focus, pliability and cooperation skills have collectively intertwined in the formation of an advanced professional ethic. This has cohesively facilitated the emergence of pronounced interpersonal communication skills and elegant time management. I am most passionate in my desire to educate youth with the tools of creative expression. It is my long term professional plan to pursue a PhD in Art Psychotherapy, after I earn my Masters in Studio Arts.

I trust I will be a valuable asset and a positive contributor to your establishment. With a high level of detailed observation and personal dedication, I am able to project an amiable and courteous attitude while participating to add energy and inspiration to the environment. Given the opportunity, it would be a privilege to contribute these characteristics in a new and challenging setting. I would be thrilled to meet with you to discuss how my time and skills may relate to your needs.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
