She holds a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design, along with studying abroad at the Burren College of Art (Ballyvaughan, Ireland).Various freelance and educational events/lectures have added to a spectrum of artistic outlets.
Love for curating naturally came about through her active role in the arts throughout the years. Independent curatorial projects taking place at DIY spaces, progressed to her curatorial project,’ Sugarcraft’ an exhibit that premiered at the Kasia Kay Art Projects, Chicago, IL in ’09, which involved over 50 artists, internationally. Whiteside’s love for finding unique contemporary movements, and interesting art, has challenged her to move on with her independent projects. Her exhibition makings led naturally to her equal love of design, art marketing and promotion.
Her mixed media artwork has shown internationally, most relevantly at Mahan Gallery (OH), Kasia Kay Art Projects (Chicago, Il), Urban Institute of Contemporary Art (MI), The Carnegie (KY), The Columbus Museum of Art (OH), Roy G.
