This dress was originally a beautiful piece with gorgeous lace draped all along the top. Until I let a friend borrow it for an underwater tea-party. After getting it back partially SHREDDED with no explanation I wasn't sure if I should cry or tamper with it more. I decided to sew it and shred it till my heart was content.
I've been working on this series with my partner in crime, Sarah Sherman. Over the summer I decided instead of back to school clothes I would buy more animal masks to add to my collection. We're hoping on eventually creating a children's book!
Having never been to the city I decided recently I couldn't put it off any longer. I could hear New York calling my name over the great lakes and into Michigan. I decided to take a week of off school and venture there on my own to visit some colleges and friends. While in the city I happened to stumble upon the Occupy Wall Street Protest, a crazy thing called a crepe (I had previously thought it was a coated grape) and overwhelming amounts of everything. It won't be long till I'm there, FOR FOREVER, hopefully:} Here are some photos form my journey.
My friend Jake Vogds painted this of us. He's currently a student at the School of the Art Institutes of Chicago. He's so photogenic and a hilarious person to hang out with. I can't wait to do more shoots with him in the future!
Here is a link to his website:
This field always reminds me of the beauty God has placed in my world. I can't thank him enough for how much he's blessed me with, so much that I don't deserve it's overwhelming.
This shoot was actually for my new project with animal masks-hence my dad wearing the rabbit mask in the third picture. I can't wait to finish it and show you guys!!
