Amelia Wiygul - Takeover Artist

This month, March, a group of teen artists have taken over the Greenhouse.  Their work is hanging in the shop all month, and unless see tell you you would never know the makers of this art are so young.  As well as having their work all over the shop, they are taking over the Smarty Pants Lectures this month.  Come get to know these beautiful young women and their art! 


How old are you, and where do you go to school?

I am 18, I go to Ocean Springs High School.

How did you get interested in making art/poetry?

I've always wanted to be a writer or an artist. Except when I was three and wanted to be Baby Bop from Barny.

What do you doodle when you are in class?

Monsters, and my left hand.

If you could draw any biscuit, what would it be?

A biscuit monster.

What are you listening to now?

Sleeping at Last's album "Atlas"

What do you want to be when you grow up?

I want to be a lot of things, but dream jobs right now include movie director and beekeeper.

What do you think every time you hear that question?  What question should we(you know, the older folks) ask instead?

Everytime I'm asked that, I never have a solid answer. Non-millennials expect to hear "Doctor" or "engineer", but I don't want to reduce my future to a career I may never have. Instead, ask people about their pets- who the heck doesn't want to talk about their pets?

What do you love about yourself?

I love my ability to deliver jokes deadpan. it took a long time to perfect.

How do you want to change the world?

I'm a big supporter of education and communication. Those two things have the potential to solve every problem. I want to promote them with everything I do.
