3…2…1…Blast off!

launch.jpgHi! Welcome to Maquette. I’m so excited to be launching. A little bit about this blog: It’s a visual inspiration board where I’ll post on design, fashion, and art. Basically a collection of visual references that I find inspiring. I’m an artist, so I’ll also share my own work at varying stages of completion.

A maquette is a small model of a finished work. It’s used to visualize and test shapes and ideas without the cost or effort of producing a full-scale product. The analogue would be a painter’s sketch or a design prototype of any kind. A maquette is built to convey “the immediacy of the artist’s first realization of an idea” (full definition), and the same might be said about this blog.
