Meet the Maker:
WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?
My name is Emily, I’m from Alaska and am heading to occupational therapy school in the fall! Currently, I’m having fun designing and beading earrings.
DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.
I love to learn! My undergraduate degree was in biology and it actually taught me so much about my faith as a follower of Jesus. My microbiology degree strengthened my faith because I just saw it as a way to learn more about how God created everything we can observe in physics, chemistry, and biology. I want to share these stories of how the lord has shown me his creation through wearable art.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.
I lived and worked on a glacier as a dog sledding tour guide one summer in Alaska!
Being from Alaska and my first time
WHY DO YOU LOVE TO DESIGN, CREATE + MAKE?
I started out by making my own earrings because I wanted something that no one else was making or that I could find for sale. I love using this medium to create new ideas!
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD SHARE WITH OTHER ARTISTS + MAKERS?
Trust your own style!
