She is working on a project to create and share a sculpture each day. To create these sculptures she works with found, cast-off, industrial, or surplus materials.

@PortofRaleigh hosts a special preview event for Ideal Space, an installation designed, built, and curated by students in the College of Design at North Carolina State University. The exhibit will be shown at the @ncartmuseum from January 6th, 2018 through January 25th, 2018. The exhibition consists of products that viewers can interact with in a tactile and thought provoking way. The theme for the installation is "home" and each young designer will have the chance to interpret this in their own way through the products they design.
