Nadilyn Beáto: Awesome Snake Sculpture Creations
Her name is Nadilyn Beato and she is currently a senior at Parsons, The New School For Design. She is studying illustration and her work ranges from traditional to digital.
She started making animal sculptures in May 2010 after the BP oil spill occurred. Nadilyn loves animals and she wanted to help the animals in the Gulf. So she came up with a brilliant idea of making animal necklaces of the animals affected by the oil spill. Nadilyn began to sell them and 75 % of the sales were set aside to be donated and other 25% was used to purchase more supplies so she can continue making more necklaces.
After four months had passed Nadilyn had managed to raise an impressive €1,103.48 for the Environmental Defense Fund with the help of the generous individuals that purchased her awesome work. After that people continued asking her to make more animal necklaces (I am not surprised at all). Nadilyn states “I love creating sculptures, so I continued to create animals in a variety of forms”.
You can see more of her creations at Nadilyn’s Facebook page.
