Digital Prints

Wanted to post a glimpse of a little bit work from this year. This is a sample of work from my digital print collection I created this last year.

Making the jump from a very 2D world to 3D, wasn't easy for me, but I think it helped broaden and develop my personal aesthetic. I'm excited to continue exploring...

Waffle Quest

Just one more food post! I swear I'm eating carrots for the next month straight.

I've openly declared my love for pancakes, well I'm also partial to it's close cousin the waffle. With my parents in town, I took the opportunity to go on a glorified waffle expedition, AKA a trip to Belgium.

Together we embarked on a search for the elusive (not so much, I ate 4 of em') liege waffle. Before leaving, a dear friend sat me down and schooled me about what to look out for - Forget those square traditional waffles - head straight towards the irregular shaped ones + make sure they're FRESH! So we made our way through Bruges and Brussels, seeing the sights, filling our bellies and washing it all down with some Kriek.

Well with a limited time schedule, but careful consideration - I can say hands down most delicious + freshest liege waffle I tasted during my stay came from vitalgaufre.

Before + After

Went on back to London Town with my parents. Being their first trip, we made a mandatory fish + chips stop at Geales. Yes it's big + yes it's fried + yes you need a nap after, but it's worth the trip.

Brompton Cemetary

Living in London last year, I stumbled across Brompton Cemetery while walking around. In the middle of the full, hectic city laid this tranquil place. Although at first it seems a bit morbid, the deeper you walk inside, you immediately feel a sense of peace. Surrounded by a wealth of history and stories that are lifetimes away, the cemetery is ironically very filled with life... people stroll through with dogs, jog and read on benches.

It's not The Tower or Big Ben, but if you find yourself in London on nice day, it's worth a wander...

Brain Thunder

I have been swallowed into an abyss of textiles, sewing and sketching. Although it looks like a fabric store exploded all over my house - wouldn't have it any other way. This past year has offered me a refreshing creative surge.

School is in full swing as I prepare to finish up my studies. Can't wait to share some of the things I've been working on...

New Work - Parsons Paris

I've been working with Parsons Paris these last couple months to design + develop a summer site showcasing their classes. In addition we worked in a simple cart to make the overall summer abroad experience easy + inviting. Much like Paris is the backdrop to the school, I've attempted to translate the same feeling on the site. I couldn't be happier with the outcome!

You can view the site here: - Would love to know what you think!

Feeling a little homesick for New Orleans, missing out on all the Saints celebrations + another Mardi Gras. We packed up our bags + headed over to Venice to fill the Carnival void!

Venice did not disappoint...we caught the very start of the celebrations, we threw on some masks + ran into various mini-marching groups along the way. We traded our usual Mardi Gras beer for wine + tasted some amazing local food! We ended up stumbling upon a little oesteria, Ai Rusteghi, serving up some heavenly little fresh paninis (I'm a sucker for miniature sized foods). Venice is enchanting, leaving me eager to see more of Italy...
