Explore the diversity of projects I have completed over the years. My creativity spans numerous disciplines: creative writing, body painting, museum education, and art curation and creation in hospitals. Despite the variety in my experiences, each project was deeply impactful and highlights the passion and curiosity I have in taking projects from the advent of their idea all the way through the circuitous design process, and finally to a meaningful product or experience.
THE BODY AS CANVAS
The Body as Canvas explores the vulnerability of the patient-doctor relationship, the intricacies of human anatomy and pathology, and the body as a narrative for personal lived experiences, all through the medium of body painting.
STANFORD HOSPITAL ART PROGRAM & SOL LEWITT MURAL
The Stanford Hospital Art Program project explored how art can be used to enhance the patient expierence in the already uncertain and uncomfortable environment of the hospital.
K-12 ART MUSEUM EDUCATION & TOUR GUIDING
Stanford's Cantor Arts Center and The Anderson Collection extensively trained students to serve as docents. We were trained to create hour long thematic tours filled with engaging activities that made the museum experience more accessible for all ages and demographics. Tours were specifically tailored to target curriculum for K-12 students who visited on school fields trips to the museum.
WRITING A CHILDREN'S BOOK ABOUT PB&J & ILLUSTRATING WITH POLYMER CLAY
This project curiously investigated and carried out the process of handcrafting a rhyming children's story of how peanut butter met jelly. The story spans themes of self discovery and teamwork, and vividly captures these themes visually through tedious handcrafted polymer clay sculpted scenes. This book is self published and can be purchased through The Book Patch.
CREATIVE WRITING & RESEARCH
I have included writing samples from a class I took at Stanford called "Illness in Literature", where we explored narrative writing and how illness can be used in character development of a story. Additionally, I have included a piece of spoken word poetry titled, "If I Were a Criminal." This poem uses paradox to question how we should be fighting the ills and perils of our society.
STANFORD WOMEN IN MEDICINE LOGO DESIGN & REBRAND
As the Executive of Media and Marketing for SWIM, it was my responsibility to address and enhance the way the club was branded. The original logo was outdated and lacked any connection to medical imagery; therefore, I felt the need to redesign the logo. This manifested in creating stickers, t-shirts for the club, and propelling a redesign of our club website.
My medical illustration is created on my Ipad pro with the app Procreate. I have illustrated scientific processes for research done in the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Stanford, focusing on the implications of stem cells on the growth and proliferation of bone tissues in the body.
