Autumn graduated with her BA in Business Administration with a focus on Advertising and Economics from Flagler College. In 2003, she started AVR Photography, her own professional photography business photographing events, weddings, band photos, senior portraits, and product photography. Her business allowed her to travel all over the globe where she pursued a passion of landscape and travel photography.
In 2009, she started a small business, The Anglin Artisan, making handmade items and selling them at local markets and online through stores like Etsy.com and Ebay.com. This led to a career in the fashion industry making avant garde costumes she designed and sewed herself. She showed her creations in a series of runway shows from Washington to Arizona.
By 2012, Autumn began working with The Tangled Threads and designed and created all of their looks for this stiltwalking act. She has since taken on other stiltwalking clients and worked with them to create unique costumes for their acts.
Autumn has also shown her photography, watercolor paintings, mixed media collages, sculptures, hand bound art books and motorized and movable art pieces in hundreds of art shows around the world under the name Autumn Steam. She was inspired to curate an international art project called The Artist’s Shuffle, where she had over 100 artists participate.
Since 2010, Autumn has published 8 books with more on the way. She used her skills in the Adobe Suites to design and layout the books. These books are available through Amazon.com.
Since 2016 she has worked on a project called Librarians With Spines, where she designed and illustrated an academic text. “Librarians With Spines is an anthology of 9 essays written by 11 radical librarians pushing the boundaries of social justice community service, library and information science, equitable bibliographic taxonomy, and ubiquitous information literacy.” (https://www.facebook.com/librarianswithspines/)
In 2018, Autumn pursued and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design and Web Design at Southern New Hampshire University where she has learned and applied more skills such as web design, UX, and the professional process for good communication with clients and customers.
In 2019, Autumn started the first Willamette Valley Mushroom Study Group called WVMS Funga. She has learned the basics of mycology and began getting fungi DNA sequenced. She is currently writing a book called "The Year of the Mushroom" and created a website www.mycoradicate.com.
She is currently taking new clients.
