My time at UD as an art student was pivotal for my personal and professional life.
With the strong foundation I received in design and studio classes I have been able
to engage visually and analytically with artworks from the Ancient through the Contemporary
eras. My advanced art history classes, in particular, were eye-opening, informative,
and challenged both my writing and observation skills. I wrote my thesis on Jackson
Pollock and still engage with his work.
I am a Master's student at the University of North Texas, focusing on Medieval Art.
I will graduate this May 2017. I am writing my thesis on a small Benedictine monastic
church in Southern Italy. I spent three weeks in Italy last summer doing on-site research.
I also guest lecture in survey classes, for which I am a teaching assistant.
