Meet Becca Sevin
- Originally from Washington, Becca made the move to Michigan for Graduate School at Western Michigan University.
- As a Sociology student, she is interested in why people do what they do and the reasons behind what happens in our society.
- One of her goals is to become Dr. Sevin.
- Becca's interest in people plays a major role in her artwork.
- She had previously wanted to be an Art Major, but couldn’t get in to classes due to limited availability at the time. So, she took a few sociology classes to broaden her art conceptually and expand on the thought she put behind her work.
- Now, Becca finds creativity everyday through sociology. “You have to be creative is sociology because it requires thinking about the way people live in very unique ways. How does race play into somebody’s life? How does income factor in? How does gender change things? We call it the Sociological Imagination. It's about being creative and thinking very broadly about things.”
- Becca also comes from a family of talented artists and creative people.
- Her brothers' work contrasts her own. She tends to "draw girly, fluffy, pretty things," while her brother's drawings are a little more dark and intense.
- Clay was Becca's first artistic medium.
- For new perspectives, she listens to lots of different podcasts.
- Becca would also like to thank her Mom and Dad for being so supportive and encouraging.
Thank you for sharing, Becca! We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you again soon!
