Where did you get inspiration for the eclipse poster?
“During the 2017 total solar eclipse, my parents sent me a picture of themselves, smiling in eclipse glasses and sitting on their front stoop with their dog. It was such a goofy, happy picture, I wanted to capture that same spirit for the poster. I have a dog of my own now – a goofy, happy American foxhound mix – and he proved to be the perfect model for the total eclipse poster, which will be released ahead of the April 8, 2024, total solar eclipse. For the upcoming annular eclipse in October, I played with a similar design but referenced my parents’ tuxedo cat. There’s no denying an eclipse can be an awe-inspiring event, but it can be just plain fun too!”

What inspired you to become an artist?
“I can't help it! I've always made things, and I've been very fortunate to have had support along the way. My parents enrolled me in my first art class at four, and they encouraged me to submit work to art contests all through elementary and high school. Portfolio-based scholarships and commissioned portrait work helped me pay for college. To this day, I'm incredibly lucky to have had a career where I can be creative, and I am thankful for all the people who have made it possible.”
