"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover"


Featured in the Marion Art Gallery in Fredonia, New York, my senior thesis focused on the concept that experiences shape who we become. The quote to the left was the grounding element in which my project was based off of. If we do not see and do as much as we can, we are not our most defined and experienced selves. To convey this message, I created a set of three 24" x 36" posters that illustrate the quote. I set out an open suitcase that contained little cards in envelopes, free for the public to take. Each one contained a different item to add to their said "bucket list". I also hand-bound a booklet that further explains my thoughts and incorporates hand-written bucket-list items of my own that I'm always recording, for a personal touch.
