After years of freelance work to "pay the bills", I’ve decided to go back to university. That’s right! I’m going for a MPS in Art Therapy. I’m shooting for Pratt Institute. For more information on the program:

My concentration will be on children. More specifically, those most in need. Those who’ve suffered the most terribly —> in other words, the socio & economically disadvantaged, those sexually, emotionally and/or physically abused, the neglected & the abandoned children, as well as children diagnosed with Autism.

Let me know what you think —>

Any constructive criticism is also most welcome! I’m trying to earn my Master’s in Art Therapy. BUT, I MUST FIRST take 19 additional undergraduate courses which will qualify my eligibility to apply. I WILL get in!

I firmly believe that together we CAN make a difference.

Thanks, in advance!

THE SKINNY ———————————————————————————————->

The LC4 Chaise Lounge is the best known and most successful of Le Corbusier’s designs that first exhibited at the Salon D' Automne in 1929. This lounge chair was designed in 1928 for the furnishing of a villa in the Ville d' Avray and brings in use exposed structural elements with padded leather cushion and headrest.

This charming LC4 Chaise lounge has a tubular chromed frame with leather upholstery and painted steel "H" shaped base. The chaise-lounge is constructed out of two separate and distinct elements: the base and the seat. The latter, consisting of a tubular metal frame with elastic straps and leather covering, can move on the base, enabling the person who use it, to adopt to any position without the need for mechanical intervention, since the chair is self-balancing in any position. The shape of the seat results from a study of anatomy.

The LC4 Chaise Lounge chair has a moveable frame, which adjusts along the base from upright to full recline with ease. It allows you to select from the various choices of positions for optimum comfort.
