is a self-taught American artist, born and raised on the coast of California. The style of her work is deeply influenced by her culture, nature, and the enigmatic quality of dreams. Primarily painting the female form blended with organic elements, each of her introspective illustrations are intimate self-explorations and an attempt to capture the often unattainable and ephemeral beauty of life. While each piece should be interpreted subjectively, they all carry undertones of rebirth, heartbreak, love, sensuality, magic, and pain.

'And A And Be And Not

) is a foldable paravent built of dichroic glass segments, forming a mood-of-the-light-machine. Light and shadow, reflection, transperancy, distortion, revision and colours play in the object. This colourful impression is subtil to dynamic, always depending on time and motion.

explores the theme of transformation- the transition between open spaces to more intimate and enclosed ones. My goal was to primarily observe, understand and research the meaning of "transformation", which should ultimately lead to a discovery of a new product. I propose that people need "spaces of calmness" to direct the course that they want to live. Yet, these "spaces" seem to vanish in our daily routines. Relaxation, calmness and the awareness that comes from having time to disconnect seem to have a decreasing part in our live. Pursuing that thought, I have conducted research at the intersection of nature, motion, society and living spaces. My goal has been to ultimately create an object that symbolizes and captures the meaning of "Transformation" and creates the user a space to retreat from the hustle of daily live. My design affords users to rest within the object in an open state, and if more privacy is desired, one can easily pull the wooden shell closed via a pivoting mechanism, creating a protective canopy over the occupant." - Philipp Süssmann
