Artist of the Day / Rachel Sigmon

I am just amazed at Rachel’s artistry and creativity.

“My name is Rachel. I am a mother of two beautiful children. I am a proud military spouse to a husband in the USAF. I am a licensed Cosmetologist & Makeup artist. I decided a long time ago that I’d rather be a starving artist than a slave to my shears. I have been sewing & playing with hair since I was young and decided to pick up fashion designing about 3 years ago. I started making headpeices 4 years ago and I haven’t stopped since. I’m still waiting for lady gaga to knock on my door and ask me to make her a headdress. đŸ˜‰
I live to create, it is my upmost passion and I am very devoted to my art. I hope you can appreciate it as much as I do. Blessings! :)”

About destructivetesting

I'm a self-taught artist who prefers to use found objects in ways that were never intended. I'm not interested in making 10 or 100 of the same object. This, of course, takes more time to make each piece. I also prefer a more minimalist look, where each part of a piece can be appreciated. I consider my clocks to be small sculptures with moving parts. And, my lamps to be small sculptures with light. My mirrors are reflective sculptures. DESTRUCTIVE TESTING means to push something to it's limits to understand it's structural performance or material behavior under different stresses. I interpret this in my artwork as using materials in different ways or combinations than they were designed to be used. I also just like the slightly ominous sound of the term...

  1. That looks like one of Brooks Coleman’s metal bras in the one ‘party’ photo. He’s one of my earlier Artists of the Day.
