The ART STUDIO

Artist Statement

My current work,  is generally about transformation, a conscious acceptance of history, in a mythological sense, and declaration of the inherent beauty in the process of creating the present.

Recurrent themes involve working with nature and human relationships, and the integrated alchemical stories between them.

These are typically in the form of natural and elemental “entities”.

 

Her available art is at the Studio Store.

An overview of her work is here.

The LAB

At YCE Studios Lab, we are still observing nature. Learning from our diverse experiences, aligning with healthy environmental and human systems, and building with the understanding that we integrate these systems into our design.

Collaborative work is what the LAB (Learning, Aligning, Building) is about.

The LAB is a regenerative product design and collaboration space. 

We are making furniture, lighting, wall coverings and panels, passive energy harvesters as part of the living space, and home decor. We are exploring material technologies and ways to power items.

We are designing for the future. With this in mind, we begin designing with certain parameters in place. Our end product works within a circular economy, considers permaculture perspectives, honors indigenous technology, aligns with natural home construction, considers bio-inspired design, acknowledges modern scientific knowledge, and is non-toxic. And, of course, is designed for human use and appreciation. Whew!

 

LET'S START!

More to come soon.
