Pronouns: She / Her / Hers
The Galleries at Moore receives major award from the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage to present Michelle Lopez's "Pandemonium."
My thesis collection, Pearly Eyed, is the visual embodiment of my struggles with lupus. This disease causes my joints to swell and causes me immense physical pain. I wanted my collection to show the viewer what it is like for me to exist in my body. I express this through my silhouettes and take inspiration from the pearly eyed butterfly for my color palette, as purple butterflies are a symbol of lupus.
