Moe's Profile

About

Why hello there! Welcome to the Five Sixteenths shop!

I am Moe, a creative 9-5er who's decided to take on a creative adventure 27 years in the making. I am a southern city girl with a hankering for Sweet Tea & a desire to keep her hands busy. Born & raised in a family full of creativity, I've been making since the day my gramma gave me a crochet hook. My little crocheted necklaces were the talk of the 2nd grade, believe me.

After growing up a bit & attending college I revisited my dream of selling my lovingly handmade items. Upon being convinced that artists have more fun, I changed my area of study from Mathematics to Art.

After spending three years covered head to toe in clay I graduated with a BFA from a small Virginian college. Since then I embarked on a year long journey post grad to discover…

Why hello there! Welcome to the Five Sixteenths shop!

I am Moe, a creative 9-5er who's decided to take on a creative adventure 27 years in the making. I am a southern city girl with a hankering for Sweet Tea & a desire to keep her hands busy. Born & raised in a family full of creativity, I've been making since the day my gramma gave me a crochet hook. My little crocheted necklaces were the talk of the 2nd grade, believe me.

After growing up a bit & attending college I revisited my dream of selling my lovingly handmade items. Upon being convinced that artists have more fun, I changed my area of study from Mathematics to Art.

After spending three years covered head to toe in clay I graduated with a BFA from a small Virginian college. Since then I embarked on a year long journey post grad to discover what I wanted to be. I walked off the stage into my first big kid job, moved out of my parent's house, & in with my best college pal.

As an artist I strive to consider how we are more alike that we are different. My work deals with individuality, identity, & nostalgia. I am inspired by things once owned by others & search to cherish these untold stories of the past so that others' experiences may share in my own. I search to understand how I am connected to others.

Currently I am embarking on a new journey by moving a third of the way cross country to join my supportive boyfriend.

I am dedicated to what I love & what I love is handmade! I am a firm supporter of the DIY & buying handmade movement. This stimulates local economies & just plain feels good to have an item someone cared about to make.

I also blog about all things art & handmade here:
