Sophie’s Gallery Artist of the Month / DECEMBER

Sophie’s Gallery Artist of the Month / DECEMBER

Shauna Davis

Sophie’s artist Shauna Davis has an endless supply of enthusiasm, with a cheerful and bubbly personality that is contagious! Her clay bird mask made in the new ceramics department on our main campus is featured in the Holiday show: Wings & Snow. When asked for her inspiration for the mask she exclaimed, “I like to hear birds chirping!” while pointing up to indicate that birds fly in the sky. “I have fun playing with the clay, but it can be messy!” she said while showing off her carefully manicured nails. “Sometimes I get my nails done. It’s cool! My mom takes me and they use a special dryer to dry the polish.” When asked if her mom has her nails done at the same time Shauna got serious, “No, its just special for me and afterwards my mom buys me a slurpee as a treat!”
Shauna’s favorite art activity is drawing. “I like to draw at home too,” she added. On campus her favorite activity is swimming.” I use to be on the swim team but now I just swim laps in the pool.” She was especially excited about the brand new aquatics building saying, “I saw the new building because Kim Holt (the Aquatic’s Manager) showed me around. Big locker room, big bathrooms! The old building was too small – too small for me!”
Shauna’s favorite holiday is Christmas. She enjoys helping to decorate the tree with ornaments. “Open the gifts!” was her response when asked what her favorite thing was about the holiday, quickly adding,  “and sleeping in.”
When asked what her favorite food dish was, Shauna without hesitation said, “Salad – no more junk food!”
