Update on me! 👩‍🎓

Hi everyone! I know I’ve been a bit absent and only pop in from time to time but I wanted to give you all an update on me! :woman_student:

If you remember this was my last semester finishing up college and I did it! I finally completed my Bachelor’s degree in Art! :art: :camera: my emphasis is in photography and painting. It still feels so surreal to be done. I still feel like I need to be working on assignments and homework :sweat_smile:

If you want to check out my work here is the link to my website. https://marissa-kucharek.squarespace.com

My thesis project was having a “Senior Art Show” with my fellow classmates that were art majors. We showed our artwork in the gallery on campus. Since there were 4 of us we each got our own wall to display our work. I showed 8 pieces (photographs) and all of my work was for sale. I ended up selling 2 pieces! We learned how to properly install artwork (measure, hang, etc) as well as typing up an artist statement and put up wall vinyl text of our name and title cards.

Im definitely taking this summer time to unwind and relax. As well as take some time to read books and work on new art projects now that I have time and can take things at my own pace now.

I plan on being more active on here connecting with everyone and making more posts! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Congratulations on your degree and also on your two sales!! :clap: :clap: :tada:

For some reason this reminded me of one of the episodes in the Netflix show Blown Away :fire: If you haven’t seen it, it’s about glass sculptors making concepts and pieces of art on the spot. It has some inspiring moments too!

I look forward to seeing more of you around the Coven!! :infinite_roots:

My mother’s grandfather made a Granddaughter clock! It was beautiful, but I couldn’t keep it at my house. A very good friend is having it fixed & is putting it in their babies room when she is born.

My father’s wife has a collection of Grandfather clocks. They are all gorgeous, but that many going off at the same time is a bit much. Lol
