I've been talking about going back to school for 6 years now. I guess I've been procrastinating do to the fear of failure, but also because I wasn't sure of what I wanted to do. I've been working as aa designer/art director in advertising for the past 10 years. Putting together my portfolio for application was a wonderfully excruciating process. It took me 4 years find my voice and then another 2 years to create the pieces. Long-story-short. I'm going to Pratt Institute for a MFA in sculpture with the objective to focus on public art.And I won't be coy, I am totally psyched. So I will be blogging about this journey for the next two years.

And then to the left is my room.
This area is still under construction but I was dying to show you the old window that Will gave me as a house warming present. Best gift ever!
Overall, I need a bit more color. I am not sure what that color is yet. I am digging the peacefulness of the neutrals though. Maybe something in the way of throw pillows for accents.
I moved! to cozy studio with a real kitchen and walk in closet in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. I am now familiar with every single thing that I posses. Kinda feels good. Moving is a royal pain but I do love unpacking and arranging my space. First up on the tour is my bathroom.
I adore the photos of Karen & Avril's home in the latest Selby post. It's like a series surreal vignettes where Sweet Vally High girls go post punk. But I'm especially partial to the girdle bedspread, bra shams and chandelier made of hosiery.
