Machine done tattoos from my own art flash, done by me in my home every Saturday from 10 am to 8 pm for two months (until I ran out of supplies). 50% ($10) of each tattoo was donated to a non-profit at risk of losing funding as result of the new president.  The customer got to choose the non-profit.

2016. Teaching Assistant for Mary Stewart’s Creative Inquiry – Florida State University

Since only graduate students are given teaching assistant positions, I was treated as a graduate student while being Mary Stewart’s TA for her Interdisciplinary Honors course, Creative Inquiry. I was responsible for uploading online course material, announcements, and e-mails. I developed a class exercise on imaginative thinking, and later lead the discussion for introducing the classes final project.

2016, 2015. Prints Over Easy. 

Running the portable screen printing cart in the 621 Annex for First Friday’s every month. Anyone was welcome to come and pull a print to take home with them, and learn more about the process and it’s versatility. Donations were welcome and all funds were put into the FSU Print Club.

 

Experience:

2016-Present. Research Assistant – Florida State University College of Fine Arts, Art Department

From creating a spreadsheet or powerpoint to sorting through course searches or award applications, I am learning the importance of office tasks. My ongoing side project for the last two semesters has been collecting Alumni Profiles, which entails me interviewing the College of Fine Art’s alumni, and I use the information to publish a profile on the Department of Art’s website.

2014-Present. Print Lab Monitor – Florida State University

As a key holder lab monitor, I am more of a “stand in” instructor for any troubleshooting the students need during my lab hours, in addition to cleaning and making sure equipment is intact.

2017. Screen Printing Art Teacher – LeMoyne Art Education Annex

Since most teens, especially in Northern Florida, have never heard of screen printing, I start with a brief introductory to how screen printing started, and I give them hands outs and zines to keep and refer back to. Then we make messes, art, and friendships.

2016, 2015, 2014. Summer Internships at Rauschenberg Residency – Captiva island, FL

The Rauschenberg Residency is an artist residency that offers family residencies over summer, where the selected artists may bring their families to the property to live for one month. This offers a funded residency opportunity to artists who may otherwise not be able to spend a month away from their family. My position at the residency was to be an art camp instructor.

2016, 2015. Event Coordinator of Print Club, Vice President – Florida State University

I was responsible for coordinating all workshops, meetings, auctions, table events and Prints Over Easy events for the club. This included sending e-mails, posting to social medias, printing and posting flyers around town; then having an agenda for each event.

2015. Silkscreen Printer for B-Major Prints – Tallahassee, FL

Very hot warehouse, printing shirt orders for local companies from 20 to 100, two four color presses, and a flash dryer adding to the hot florida warehouse conditions. Never complained.
