MEET THE ARTISTS

Meet Somer Cochran...

Painting, jewelry design, and sculpting are my ways of expressing a love for art through different mediums. My creations are both simple and whimsical.

 

As a child, I would draw fantastical images of paradise, magical birds, and unrealistic fauna. My parents encouraged my creativity by allowing me to draw and paint on my bedroom walls. I often asked for art supplies on birthdays or Christmas.

 

I am a completely self taught artist, which renders most of my painting and sculpting techniques as unconventional. I have been designing jewelry for ten years and sculpting miniatures for the past four years from my home studio on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. My inspiration for all of these mediums comes from a deep respect for our planet and the animals that we share it with.
