Making art school worth it
Some personal projects I've done through the years.

The Curiosity Index
This project was my thesis in graduate school at the School of Visual Arts. It followed the stories that unfolded as I explored the history of a singular object.
I had the opportunity to work with professors like Dorothy Twining Globus, Curator of Exhibtions at the Museum of Arts and Design, and my advisor, Carin Goldberg, famed American graphic designer. I found two mentors who appreciated objects and much as I did. Both women pushed me to elevate my research to be both historical and also emotional.

Sitting behind a computer all day often leaves me wanting to make things with my hands in a more tangible way. In my spare time I love to get my hands dirty in my jewelry studio. I'm a total novice, but it's incredibly satisfying to work with metal and stones. Silversmithing is the most satisfying combination of art and good old fashioned elbow grease.
