About Me

A graduating senior at CCS, majoring in Fashion Accessory Design.

Growing up surrounded by creative parents and mentors, I found myself gaining an extensive background in the fine arts. I thoroughly enjoy the art of provocative storytelling and using my background to seek out inspiration in the most obscure and mundane objects/experiences.

My ultimate mission as an artist/designer is to envelope my audience into a story that transports them, surprises them, and provokes an emotional response. In an effort to humanize design; the use of curious form, engaged color, and technical craft inspires my inquisitive creations. As an artist with a disposition to inventive design and form, I challenge conventional fashion through my thoughtful perspective, sculptural influence, and material manipulation.

INSPIRATION

Inter-Being is a complete awe for nature as imagined from a child's perspective.

Inter-being is about exploring the inherent relationship between the natural world and the virtuousness of the child. It is this relationship which holds the key to unified peace among elements. Inter-being is about embracing a purity buried deep within us, a never ending imagination, and finding peace through poetry, art, and play. This collection is about exploring the ebb and flow of nature as it is woven into the fibers of our being; and recognize that all life is connected.

In the commonality of all life, the actions of each individual member or species affect the entire commonwealth, however small the result might be. Choose to live in peace knowing you love everything you are made of-and relish in it.

PORTFOLIOS

DETAIL

We are one with the earth the same as we are one with ourselves.

The Inter-Being Collection is about exploring the inherent relationship between the natural world and the virtuousness of the child. It is about embracing a purity buried deep within us, a never ending imagination, and finding peace through poetry, art, and play. Soft and natural hues expresses a far gone memory of gathering wildflowers in an open field-enjoying the splendor of the grass beneath bare soles and basking in the light of the sun. The plush and chemical contrast of the materials used takes one back to the excitement of childhood toys and imaginative exploration.

The vaulting path of the sun, the course of the changing moon, the wandering glitter of the stars, the year's seasons and their changes, and the deep blue depths of the ether.
