Little Circles.

I don't like the idea of things coming full circle - too much finality. What I instead stand behind is the idea of little circles - a life full of hundreds of endings meeting hundreds of beginnings, overlapping to create something interesting, dynamic and ever-changing. I like thinking that something that may seem like an …

Royals.

Today I met with my independent study advisor to discuss my ideas for a cyanotype installation that will be on display this coming April. I sat down, looked at her and said "fair royalty". She had no clue what I meant, which absolutely floored me. This whole time I had thought that I wanted to …

A Home.

I have put in countless hours (with the wonderful assistance/company of my mother) working on the presentation for my prints soaked in milk and eggs. Although the project is not quite finished and the pieces have yet to be …
