“For now we see in a mirror, dimly...
Doubt (temporary title) is a series of sculptural spaces based around the idea that our perceptions of reality are flawed and limited.  The idea that we are viewing life through a dim mirror.  The concept was visualized through an experiment where I filmed myself sleeping and extracted a series of... 
Drawing for Illustration term project (i...
Illustration this term has been a revelation for me.  Gayle Donahue has opened my eyes to the potential of illustration that I never saw.  For my term project I decided to create a piece based on my family history.  Being from latvia (a former soviet country), I had a rich history to draw from. ...

So, i thought to myself, i finally made it! After 3 1/2 years of preparation i had finally arrived at art center. I was pumped, ready to conquer the world…..well the design world anyways.   But before i could set out to embark on this long, greuling, intense, but ultimately rewarding journey...
