…and everything nice.

Leah J. Babik grew up in Northern Kentucky. Painting and drawing are her preferred mediums. Spending time in Asia, Africa and most recently, a semester in France, has influenced her perspective on life and work. After graduating, she plans to work in Ghana doing micro- financing.

Brenna Fitz-Gerald is from Defiance, Ohio and Lexington, Ky. She has been working with textiles, specifically knitting, crocheting and sewing, for 15 years now. In the future she plans on continuing to create work, plan her wedding and get a job, but beyond that, it’s still a mystery! See more at http://colorfulmanatee.wordpress.com

Megan Sauter works in sculpture and ceramics. She also teaches ceramic classes to both children and adults, and sells her jewelry and pottery. She plans to enter graduate school and teach at a college level. See more at www.wix.com/Msauter0/artist.

Danielle Speirs was born in Spokane, Wash. She is a double major, Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Bachelor of Art with an emphasis in graphic design. She is interested in the possibilities of combining the two.

Kelsey Stamper is from Georgetown, Ky. She works in digital media: graphic design, photography and info-graphics. She hopes to continue to work in this field. See more at Kelseystamper.blogspot.com.
