WORKING WITH MARLA
* Currently seeking full-time employment in the field of interior architecture / design beginning June 2018! *
I am available for part-time digital design freelance projects. Need interior design help? I can do that, too! If you like what you see in my Etsy shop, let's chat about custom products. Please reach out if you're interested in working with me.
RISD Interior Architecture Thesis
My thesis (currently in progress) focuses on the topic of technology as it relates to nature and climate change. I aspire to present an exhibition merging the possibilities of biomimetic design and adaptive reuse with the end goal of educating and spreading awareness. Coming May 2018, this thesis aims to address how biomimetic technology can change the way we live in an increasingly changing climate.
I'm a creator of things. I love cats, and I have one named Tucker. I named my Etsy shop, Tucknote, after him. Previously a Senior Art Director at VaynerMedia, a social media agency in NYC, I am now a second year graduate student studying Interior Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence (graduating May 2018). I play piano, trumpet, and am currently taking pipe organ lessons at Brown University. I like baking, fiction, keeping things organized, and own way more types of adhesives than you do.
Tucknote is an Etsy shop I started in February of 2015 that sells paper goods and gifts inspired by cats! The shop is a labor of love filled with a slowly growing supply of handmade items all designed by me. Currently on the roster are hand-lettered cat quotes and themed posters, sketched / colored / stamped greeting cards, and laser cut acrylic pieces including earrings, swizzle sticks, keychains, and paper clips. All aspects of the business are handled by me.
