This was my studio space for the past year as well as my home away from home. I spent more time in this little cubicle than I did in my dorm room. Although this is where I did way too much drafting, drawing, and model-making, it will always hold a place in my heart as my first studio space!
This sleep space was inspired by the unusual beds that I found previously through a little research. I liked the egg shape of the bed and wanted to use a canopy without making it look like a crib. To make this model I used a floral foam mold, a sheet of cork, copper wire, thread, and a circle of white mesh.
These are drawings of a place in downtown Greensboro called Elsewhere. The space is used as a museum of sorts where artists come to draw inspiration from the mounds of random stuff left over from a thrift store. Drawing the space was very difficult as there is so much stuff that it is hard to filter and it becomes rather overwhelming. I chose to focus on smaller vignettes within the space, allowing the drawings to have more detail.
