About Chereese La-Vonne: I am an object designer and spoken word poet with a passion for designing objects and experiences that support emotional well-being through moments of self-reflection. In knowing our Selves, we have the power to cultivate the life of our dreams. I earned my BA in Architectural Studies from the Caribbean School of Architecture, UTECH in Jamaica. Currently, I am halfway through a Master of Design in Designed Objects at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, IL. My collections are inspired by my architectural background, my [spiritual] life growing up in Jamaica, and intriguing natural patterns.
