A big hello! My name is CJ Reilly III.
I’m a creative professional whose enthusiasm for problem-solving has resulted in an extensive body of work that bridges ideas in illustration, design, education, and agriculture. These ideas, turned into exhibits and published work, include companies, organizations, and artists: Teachers College, Columbia University; Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA); The New Yorker; LEGO; USAID Nepal; U.S. Peace Corps; Helvetas Nepal, Basil Twist; Jonathan Horowitz; Communication Arts; Oxford University Press, and The National Art Education Association (NAEA).
Currently, I’m a graduate student at Teachers College, Columbia University where my field of study is in Art Education with Initial Teacher Certification. My research and studio work focuses on developing visual and kinesthetic-based educational materials that address food security issues in agriculture/horticulture, specifically focusing on marginalized Nepali farmers and families.
