My name is Maeve Nelson, and I am a designer and mixed media artist based in Omaha, NE.
Ever since I can remember, I have been creating my brand. It began in pre-k, when I refused to wear anything but “favorite dress” and my dress-up shoes. And still not even hesitating when I slipped in green paint and ruined favorite dress. It was at this age that I learned the most important lesson my mom has taught me. Some people live in a world where everything is black and white, others see the shades of gray, but my mom taught me to live in color.
It was shortly after this age when my identity became the creative. Whether it be turning Tabasco bottles into earrings or carving a watermelon into a whale, I am always looking for an opportunity to make something better than it was before.
