"My favorite project was the autobiographic project. I liked that it offered limitless mediums, creativity and a narrative. It got away from all the marketing/manufacturing aspects of a commercial assignment. As a designer, it forced me to approach a daunting area of illustration both conceptually and technically. The Marywood MFA program emphasizes education for working professionals – a self-managed workload, intimate group atmosphere, and insights gained through traveling and meeting people. Other four-year MFA programs in my area could never offer these experiences."
