Nashville school shooter Audrey Hale ran an art website that included a disturbing image dedicated to “The Shining” and its backward spelling of “MURDER.”
The 28-year-old who hunted down and shot dead six people — including three kids — at the Covenant School on Monday claimed online to be a professional freelance illustrator and graphic designer.
A self-portrait of “Audrey the Artist” claimed the soon-to-be mass killer was “on a mission to change the world.”
“My illustrations usually bring a whimsical and light-hearted feel,” wrote Hale, who appeared to recently start using “he/ him” pronouns and the name Aiden but whose mom on Monday referred to as “her daughter.”
However, a section of Hale’s online “AH Illustrations” portfolio is devoted to the title “Mad World” — while a prominent illustration is an homage to the threat of murder in the 1980 horror flick “The Shining.”
That illustration uses typed words to create an image of Jack Nicholson, whose lead in Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 movie is deemed one of the most chilling in film history.
The illustration includes numerous quotes from the flick, with “REDRUM” — the mirror reflection of ‘MURDER” — most prominent.
That same threatening word from a key scene in the movie is repeated in red within each letter of the main word. The homage to the movie, based on one of Stephen King’s scariest horror books, also mentions going insane.
The image is a far cry from the “whimsical and light-hearted feel” Hale describes the main pro work aimed at helping “tell a company’s story.”
“Aside from art, I enjoy binging on video games, watching movies, and playing sports” and “spending time with my two cats,” which Hale describes as “my second passion.”
“There is a child-like part about me that loves to go run to the playground,” the mass killer wrote.
That, at least, is reflected in the online work, with one image in the “personal” section showing the red sneakers of someone on a swing and the words: “To be a kid forever and ever.”
Hale also appeared to draw cartoons for a children’s book, “Toys and Books,” while directing people to an Instagram page that appears to have been scrubbed.
A self portrait of the deranged soon-to-be child killer showed “Audrey the artist” smiling in a chair while “on a mission to change the world …”
Most of the images on the site appeared to be from 2020 under the name Audrey, not Aiden.
Cops said Hale left a manifesto before storming The Covent school on Monday, where video showed the former student stalking the halls armed with at least two assault weapons and a handgun.
Hale was killed after shooting dead 9-year-old students Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs, and William Kinney as well as custodian Mike Hill, substitute teacher Cynthia Peak, and school head Katherine Koonce.
A sawed-off shotgun and a second shotgun were later discovered in a raid on Hale’s Nashville home.
Police referred to Hale with female pronouns — as well as the full name Audrey Elizabeth Hale — and the shooter’s mom referred to the latest mass shooter as “my daughter” in brief comments to ABC News.
Cops say they are still investigating whether the killer’s transgender identity could have played part in the motive for shooting up Hale’s former school.
