Landfall is a multimedia graphic novel that tells the story of two women — one a jaded paramedic and the other a reluctant gang member — who inadvertently cross paths and discover that they share a hidden secret. When a dangerous storm sets its sights on their island home of Galveston, Texas, the women have a chance to change each others’ lives for the better — but at a great risk.
Landfall, which incorporates video, photo-illustration, sound, and music is designed to be a uniquely digital experience accessible on any device from a 27″ desktop iMac to a pocket-sized smart phone.

Originally from central Maryland, I am now a mid-Atlantic transplant to the Gulf Coast of Texas (Galveston). In addition to my graduate work in Visual Narrative at SVA, I am an illustrator and mixed media artist working on a range of projects including children’s book illustration, editorial illustration and private mixed media commissions. I love to create art that captures the energy of people, cultures and cities, often spiked with a little humor. When not making art, I am either running or working my way through the teetering stack of partially-read New Yorker issues on my nightstand.
