My name is Summer. I have a BFA in sculpture and printmaking, but I have been working in the realm of craft since the birth of my son.
While in college, I learned that I was able to make work that was kinder to the Earth, yet still retain integrity visually and academically; I reused, recycled, and used natural materials for my sculpture and I assisted my printmaking professor in converting the studio into a non-toxic space.
Now that I have added crafting as a creative outlet, I find it important to constantly re-evaluate my working methods to find environmentally-friendly sources for materials, shop locally whenever possible, and still keep the aesthetic I am after.
