Arielle’s work occupies the intersection of conceptual art and modern design

With a background in installation sculpture, Arielle expanded her practice in a commercial context.  Her process involves conceptualizing, planning, and producing highly creative visual solutions.

Arielle’s designs respond to the trends she observes in the gray areas where art, design and craft begin to bleed.  Design projects include events, retail, packaging, and graphics

Arielle is currently studying Visual Presentation and Exhibit Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.  In addition to her studies, she works as a creative contributor with For The Makers and freelances as a fabricator making handmade elements for events, stop-motion commercials, and retail displays in New York City.

With a background in fine art, Arielle’s love for installation sculpture evolved into a passion for window displays, event design, visual merchandising, and retail display.  Inspired by Linda Fargo and Simon Doonan, Arielle treats display as a form of theater, luring the spectator into an ethereal realm.

In the recent past, Arielle  has had projects ranging from ceramic sculptures based on sacred geometric forms to environmental installations dedicated to ecological issues. With it’s birth in March of 2009, Arielle devoted her efforts to curate community art shows at the late R.A.T. Gallery in Gardenville.   Arielle is a graduate of the University of North Carolina in Asheville.  Her concentration was in wood-fired ceramic sculpture and installation sculpture.
