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 environments & images.

Arielle’s designs are influenced by the areas where art, design and craft begin to blur. Design projects include display for retail shops & windows, editorial stills, packaging, and graphics. The resulting designs are ethereal & transcendent through details, precision, and a celebration of the arts.

Arielle just completed the Visual Presentation and Exhibit Design program at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. In addition to her studies, she worked as a creative contributor with For The Makers and freelances as an art department fabricator specializing in handmade props for commercial video, print & 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, package design, visual merchandising, and retail display. Inspired by Linda Fargo and Tim Walker, Arielle treats display as a form of theater by transporting the audience into an ethereal realm.

In the recent past, Arielle’s projects range from ceramic sculptures based on sacred geometric forms to environmental installations dedicated to ecological issues. In 2009 Arielle devoted her efforts to curate community art shows where she curated and hung a series of exhibits for a DIY gallery and art space. Arielle is a graduate of the University of North Carolina in Asheville where she concentrated in wood-fired ceramics and installation sculpture.
