My whole life I’ve had an interest in psychology. A natural drawl towards the invisible forces that influence our experience. Alongside this interest, I have a need to create — a desire to make things visual, and physical, so that I can learn about these psychological concepts with my senses in addition to my mind. As I grew these passions manifested into an interest in design. I went to graduate school at Pratt Institute for interior design and continued to focus my research on how our perceptions of, and experiences with, the material world influence the happenings in our internal worlds. These works are testing the idea that visual perceptual experience can mirror emotional experience and that the existence of visual representation can help the mind dissolve barriers and defenses.
