I want to design furniture that grows up out of the floor - to turn the furniture into something organic. Which never has four legs

PRINCIPLES

โ€“

I have found comfort and guidance in the evolving design principles that guide my practice. These principles have formed through numerous experiences and people encompassing me in my life. Living in Scandinavia for a summer, being surrounded by a plethora of fantastic designers both through my education and work, and having a natural born persistence to learn and always be open minded are just a few things that have affected me. When I'm designing I've found that I don't necessarily apply all of my design principles to every project, but rather I find one, two, or maybe three of them guiding me when I don't know what to do. They serve as a way to stay healthy as a designer. If we don't start with our values, then they will never be apart of the project you're working on.

I won't go into detail on what all of my principles are, but to give you a taste, lately a constant of mine is to design objects that help us live in the moment. My passion lies in designing objects that enhance our experiences and add goodness to our lives, no matter how big or small.

 

A faux concrete concoction I discovered through experimenting and exploring a material unfamiliar to me. It is incredibly lightweight and strong When designing I often find myself drawing inspiration from the process and organically work to find a coalescence between the form and process

RECENT PROJECT:

"All Hail the V: Stand with Planned Parenthood"

An adult coloring book that myself and over 15 women identified designers, artists, and creatives collaborated on under the belief that reproductive rights are human rights. This was done in efforts to help fight the defunding of Planned Parenthood. There are over 20 hand drawn illustrations of vagina flowers included in the coloring book that have sassy captions below them to empower your coloring experience.  The campaign is now closed. We raised $220!!  If you are interested in a digital pdf of the coloring book contact me and simply provide proof you donated to Planned Parenthood.
