(Honorable Mention – Sculpture)
School: Palmer High School
This piece of mine is about an innocence of love. Particularly pertaining the emotion that we call ‘butterflies’. That flushed feeling of a thousand insects swarming in your belly. On this dress there are 953 butterflies that represent this feeling. I chose light and cheerful colors for my dress to communicate a sense of purity. I was inspired by the scenery of Colorado, where I spent some time this summer, watching the butterflies and hummingbirds prompted the initial ideas of my piece.
