I’m Cael (like the vegetable). I’m a multidisciplinary artist, recent graduate from VCUArts, and an aspiring product developer. Within my work, I value innovation, economic solutions, and functionality. I love to repurpose materials in unexpected ways, and I am inspired by youthful imagination. I dream of impossible things, and then I create them.
As an art student with a Sculpture and Extended Media major, I have worked to master the creative process and principles of art, to develop a greater understanding and appreciation of how my perspective can impact change, and mature as an artist, creative, and a person. I plan to attend grad school for a Masters in Product Innovation where I hope to advance my understanding of creative problem solving techniques, take on projects that challenge me to grow, and prepare me for a thriving career. In my future career as a product developer, I aim to take all that I have learned and apply it to a career in which I will have a hand in influencing progress, whether it be to help improve sustainability practices, bringing value to communities, or simply to make joy more accessible to those who need it most.
