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.
