    I think showing that you've got a creative bone in you is awesome, but perhaps it would be clearer if you stated that painting is a passion of yours, like maybe how "I love knitting little sweaters for dogs, in my spare time" is a passion of mine haha

    The work you're showing at the moment is a bit scattered in a sense that you've got some great work, but if you're trying to transition into UI, I would present work only that you feel that is strongly focused on Illustration and UI. For example, I personally would remove the "Department of Music", "University Commencement", "Soundscapes", "Book store coupon", "Kidtrition" and "Oil paintings" from this portfolio.

    The ones I've removed appear to have less illustration focus, and thus in my view have less relevancy towards illustration or icon/logo creation (both of which are useful towards when creating UI IMO).

    If you have a personal site that doesn't sit on Behance for example, you could have a separate section to display your painting work because although there's no direct relationship to UI per se, there are implications to how you observe the world beyond the surface (which is a pretty good trait to sell yourself as, as a side-benefit).

    HTH!

      Thank you so much for your feedback! I have been procrastinating on creating a personal site but I should definitely get on that. I think that will solve the problem of it being scattered and being so one dimensional. : )
