Sky is an interdisciplinary fine artist, illustrator, and creative writer that graduated from the two year visual arts intensive program at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in 2015. Sky has studied at the School of the Art Institute, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, and intends to graduate from the Pacific Northwest College of Art with a BFA in Illustration, and a minor in Creative Writing.

"My work continues to span interdisciplinary across many artistic practices. I feel it always will. We are not one thing, and nor should we be. A singular human is an entire world of experiences and sensations. We are living stories in the making."
6 Months in Rural Japan
Sky completed a six month artist in residency in 2016 and 2017 at a program called Moriumius in Ogatsu, Japan, which is organized for sustainability and cultural preservation after the 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami. While exhibiting work in varying US galleries, they created artwork for the Moriumius facilities, T-Shirt designs for the staff, and worked to better the lives of farm animals. Moriumius is a unique, one-of-a-kind program interested in educating others on the importance of sustainability and respecting nature.
