  1. My family is definitely my most favorite thing!
  2. Our dog Renny, which is a Celtic name meaning “small but mighty.”  He is much beloved and will be 13 years old in June. He travels with us frequently by car.  He loves boat rides.​
  3. I collect vintage plates, especially plates with flowers.
  4. I love making art with flowers and nature. I grow and gather flowers and objects and create “flat lay” displays or bouquets. I then use photography to capture what I create.  I turn them into pictures, tiles, or stationary.
  5. One of my favorite places in the United States is Torch Lake in the state of Michigan.

My Favorite Places

Place 1:  Black Rock City, Nevada.  Black Rock City isn’t a really a city at all.  It is actually a dry lake bed known as one of the flattest and most desolate places in the United States. 

My Favorite Places

My Favorite Places Davie, Florida

My house in Davie, Florida is one of my favorite places because it’s always warm and sunny for at least part of the day in South Florida. I go to college in Hanover, New Hampshire, where about half the year is very cold and I always have to wear a coat, so I love coming home to my backyard and being able to read and listen to music under the sun.

My Favorite Art

My Favorite Art Leah P.

I am pursuing a Masters degree in mechanical engineering. I got interested in engineering partially because I am an artist. I love to experiment with different materials to make things that other people can interact with.

My Favorite Books

My Favorite Books Nathan E.

Alice in Wonderlandby Lewis CarrollThis is one of my favorite books from childhood, which I later had the pleasure of performing in the form of ballet. I will never forget the whimsy of the characters, and the audacity of Alice, the main character. It is one of the first books that taught me the fun that could be had with language.
