Finn Gibson

“As a child I always had a fascination with introducing ants into the household. Now that I’m older, art is a good outlet for a lot of those destructive urges. Art provides a cool window into my thought process, as a peak into the machine behind the man.”

Nikki Salvestrini

Nikki primarily works in highly saturated colors, enjoying both drawing and painting and 2D design art. She hopes to have a career in art in the future.

Maggie Heenan

“I used to work primarily in graphite and ink, sometimes acrylic, but over time I’ve begun experimenting with more unconventional mediums like repurposed, collaged paper and incorporating sewing and yarn into my pieces.”
