A great deal has happened in that time, most importantly, I graduated from Grand Valley State University with my BFA degree. Not content to let that be the summation of my school experience, I am currently applying to several grad schools out east. I'm looking at getting an MFA in costume design, and plan on pursuing costuming as a career as opposed to illustration.
In April (2009) I had my senior show at GVSU ::
I ended up creating two series of costumes: four historically accurate dresses from the beginning of the 19th century, one for each decade (1810, 1820, 1830, and 1840), and four 'fairytale' costumes that were loosely based off late Elizabethan styles. I also had three paintings which accompanied the costumes.
