The New Year has brought my crazy rollercoaster of college applications to a close.  It has been a wild ride, but I am thrilled to be headed to Parsons The New School for Design in the Fall!  I wanted to share some of my portfolio with you.  I cannot wait for all the new experiences that the coming year will bring!  
Explore your aspirations in 2012 and enjoy the adventures that unfold.

      It is the second image from the bottom of this post. I just propped a green lamp, that I had, with vintage ties and then did an oil pastel drawing of it for my portfolio.
      All the prints/colors in my drawing are true to life. I love 70's inspired psychadelic ties!
