Hi, my name is Whitney Weaver.

 

I'm a fine arts educator and artist living and working in Trenton, MI.

 

My passion of finding creative solutions to visual problems is something I feel tempestuously compelled to share.

FACTS

  • My favorite medium changes all the time, right now I think it's acrylic. Last week I couldn't put down my Wacom tablet, and before that I was really into Pebeo mixed media.
  • I have experience in mixed media, oil paints, watercolor, acrylic, technical drawing, figure drawing, figure sculpting, relief, molding fashion design, fashion production, claymation, stopmotion, digital photography, ceramics, stone sculpture, wire armature, jewelry, metal-smithing,  Photoshop, Muse, Illustrator, Premier, prop design, furniture design, miniatures, and a few I have probably missed.
  • After returning from Italy, I can't drink normal coffee.  I LOVE ESPRESSO and a flaky croissant stuffed with rich dark chocolate. Nothing beats this!
  • I am married to my best friend, and we have two dogs named Finley the beagle mix and Bourbon the chiweenie. The three make frequent appearances in my work.
  • Favorite food- anything from the dim sum cart at Golden Harvest, Pad Woon Sen, Pressed Duck, poor man's curry, spicy salmon sushi, and my mom's red beans and rice.
