She has enjoyed her time getting to know her classmates and professors and participating in various shows including the Annual Life Drawing Show, Annual Student Show, and the Mayhew Creative Arts Contest. She has a love for both traditional and digital painting, and upon graduation will be beginning an Art Design Internship with Disney Creative Entertainment.

Midas was a benevolent king who lived with his daughter long ago in a magical realm. He was a kind ruler, but his kingdom was a humble one and he feared he was not providing enough for his people. With this heavily on his mind, he entered an ancient forest. Within its cover, he met the God Dionysus, who he told of his sorrows. Dionysus granted him the power to turn all that he touched to gold. King Midas returned to his kingdom elated with his new gift, but it is a power which comes with heavy consequences. He must learn to control his greed and determine what he truly holds most dear.

This project uses both traditional and digital media to create visual development for a live-action film of the Legend of King Midas.
