Welcome

My name is Audrey Marie Prior. Thank you for visiting and taking the time to get to know me.

I am a student at the University of New Hampshire, studying community and environmental planning with minors in green real estate and architectural studies. I am also a writer and an artist with a special love for photography. I am a problem solver and a researcher, exploring everything from genealogy to ecological design. I am a sister, a daughter, and a friend. I am a child of the New Hampshire seacoast, the place that I grew up and the place that I intend to remain. I am a quiet leader, a team member, and supporter. I am steady, dependable, and loyal. Everything I do is a representation of myself and I stand behind my work with pride.

I am passionate about restoring our human connection to the natural world and bridging the gap between the built and natural environments. Urban cities do not have to be concrete jungles. “The country” does not have to be the only place people can go to interact with nature. I believe that one of the fundamental problems with our modern society is our disconnect from the world that sustains us. One of my desires is to help reconnect us and bring nature back into every part of our lives. My aim is to become an architect, landscape architect, and interior designer, allowing me to have all the tools necessary to make my dream a reality.

Other interests of mine include agriculture, homesteading, off-grid living, community living, gardening and garden design, animal husbandry, forest ecology, handcrafts including knitting, machine and hand sewing, macramé, photography, writing, and drawing. I find, like many of us, that there’s not nearly enough time in the day to do all of these things, but when I do have free time, these are the types of things you’d find me working on.

The purpose of this website is to let you see me, to share myself with the world. I believe in authentic connection, and how can you connect with me if you know nothing about me? There is a lot of information on this website. That is intentional. While I don’t want to overwhelm you, I want you to get to know me, and that is not something that can be done with one short page of text.

There are two main sections to this site, the first two items in the menu. You can return to this page at any time by clicking on the logo at the top of this site. If you want to know more about me as a person, I invite you to explore the pages under ”Who I Am.” Here you will find a longer autobiography, my values, visions for the future, and passions. Under “Work and Interests” you will find my resume along with samples and descriptions of past projects that I have been a part of and work that I have done. Lastly, if you would like to get in touch with me, please see the “Get In Touch” page. I would love to hear from you so please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Best wishes,

Audrey Marie Prior
