Hey I'm Shannon, and I'm a third year student in BFADT. Last year while working on final projects I realized that I take most of my inspiration from childhood. My last big studio project was a interactive stuffed toy that I made from butchered stuffed animals from when I was young. You can see what it looked like here . So I am very excited to take this class and continue working on similar projects.
My favorite toy from childhood was my Winnie the Pooh stuffed animal. I got him for Christmas when I was 9 months old, and over the years has been loved and hugged until being barely recognizable as Pooh (see above).
He nearly was lost at a McDonald's when I was six, but now safely resides with me in Brooklyn.
