I grew up agriculturally, where the desert meets the mountains. I spent my first 10 years in June Lake, CA and my last 7 in Bishop, where I graduated from high school in 2005 and enlisted on active duty. My brother and my dad is/was artistically blessed, especially when it came to drawing. I also inherited a bit of a creative streak. However, I have the tendency to try multiple types of crafts and I master few. I love to work with my hands and when I get a wild hair, I like to create random things.
I went a bit crazy with all sorts of mediums and I tried a lot of firsts this time around. The bubble quilt was my first quilt I have ever done . Even with its “Picasso” style imperfections, it didn’t turn out entirely horrid. Besides that, it is comfortable to rest your noggin on while studying. The dream catchers are another first made with willow that I culled from my property and crochet yarn. The gram negative Proteus mirabilis with their Flagella are another first. Finally, I painted my pup using gridlines and a photo of her as the project. I drew her first, then played with paints to paint her.
The theme behind my art project focused on my border collie and her bacterial species I Isolated from her foot for my term project. The bacteria are crocheted and represent the single Flagellar Proteus mirabilis. I will be showcasing my imperfect art in class.
