Below is a collection of various scenic painting projects that were considered coursework, and were not for realized productions.
KU THEATRE PRODUCTIONS
Throughout undergrad, I worked as a Scene Shop Assistant, which meant I helped build and paint the set for every production for three years. Here are a few samples of sets I helped paint.
THEATRE IN THE PARK
In 2018, I worked at Shawnee Mission's Theatre in the Park. The summer included productions of Disney's A Little Mermaid, South Pacific, Into the Woods, The Addams Family, and Disney's High School Musical (1&2).

I was called in by the Scenic Charge (Savannah Edgar) of this project to work on this production at Atlantic Theatre Company in NYC. The scenic designer (Yu-Hsuan Chen) wanted the set painted along with each wall of the blackbox to surround the audience. I helped paint everything in the room, from the set and pillars, to the stairs and entrance used by the audience, to the walls of the blackbox itself.
My professor Dennis Christilles was the scenic/lighting designer for this production at the Living Room Theatre in Kansas City, and brought me on as a scenic painter.
