So I wanna share with you all a project that I started in my intermediate sculpture class that has continued to be a theme that I am incorporating into my artwork, which is scientific curiosity. .
For those of you who do not know me that well, you might not know that I was very into math science and science for most of my life. I know I know, really into math and science? Sounds like tons of 12 year olds! Well, to be more accurate I think I was very good at it most my life so I thought I liked it, but I really grew to love it when I got into chemistry and calculus. I was truly fascinated with how math and science was not created but discovered—it already was. It is the code for all of the beauty around us. .
You may be wondering how I ended up getting an art degree instead of a chemistry one like I had planned. Well, I actually wrote a little bit about it in my most recent blog post which the link to is in my bio. But long story short I realized I didn’t enjoy doing the chemistry or math as much as I enjoyed just learning about it. Check out my blog on my website if you wanna know more about this process and myself! There you can also find a portfolio of all my science inspired art projects!

Do you have a specific room where you keep your books or do you spread the bookish love around your house?
I used to have my books in several rooms but then Mr. Xenatine turned our dining room (which we never used) into a library. He owns a home improvement business so he built these amazing shelves for me. It doubles as one of my writing spaces. This is a view that I rarely show because it’s mostly window. Even though choosing this room means I gave up a lot of possible shelf space, I love my library. It has great views of our property and it gets so much natural light. The stained glass was made for me by father-in-law.
I absolutely love making wreaths and playing with glass foliage! I usually go in with some ideas, but when I start assembling, the wreath tells me what it wants to become.
This one is spoken for, but hoping to have a few wreaths as part of the shop update at the end of the month.
