I was commissioned to create original artwork for a waiting room at a doctor's office in Panama City, Florida. Inspired by the building's contemporary architecture and lively textiles, I created projects for two opposing walls using plywood, acrylic, mirror, and screen printing pigment. The main wall contains 28, 8.5" panels that stand off the wall. The plywood, acrylic and mirror allows the natural light in the room to bounce off the different panels. Each one-of-a-kind panel was hand-screen printed using opaque and metallic pigment. On the opposing wall, I created four larger 20" panels made of acrylic and screen printing pigment. These four panels also stand off the wall, making the prints appear to be "floating". The colors I chose for these two projects were inspired by the carpet in the waiting room and the upholstery in the chairs. I wanted to mimic the natural grasscloth and metallic sheen in the wallpaper, so I chose to work with unfinished plywood for the panels, and a metallic pigment in the screen printed designs.

I participated in a collaborative class between furniture designers, interior designers, and textile designers. I contributed to the ideation, design, execution, and presentation of an installation at the 2014 International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
SCAD's exhibit at the 2014 International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF). Our piece was a modular beam wall that invited anyone discover and create his or her own space to live in for that moment in time. Along with fifteen of my peers from fibers, furniture, and interior design, I concepted, designed, and constructed an installation for the ICFF. A true collaboration, this piece took about two weeks of ideation, three weeks of design, and two weeks of building. The booth was housed in Manhattan's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, where it received much attention, and enthusiasm from those attending the show, as well as receiving the Top Shelf award.

The mandala pattern emphasizes unity and is used in representation of the main concept behind the office spaces. A mandala represents the universe as a whole; connecting the world’s conceptual and cosmic circles. Like a mandala, the shared offices of Earthshare and Lulan Artisan strive to achieve unity through merging intricately designed areas into a web of collaborative work spaces. The central staircase unifies the two offices, provides wellness and promotes collaboration within the office.
Remaining true to the companies’ mission, the office spaces are interconnected, making links in spontaneous manners, facilitating teamwork and creating a holistic experience for all its users.
