Here are the final four, who we hope you come buy and buy from in person on June 1 or 2:
Oluwaseyi Akintoroye creates photographs of nature, and increasingly of people and scenes from Detroit and around Michigan. She also sometimes works in water color or acrylic paints and she attends Cass Tech.
Selene Craddock makes felted animals that look very lifelike – from lambs to butterflies and elephants. Appropriately enough, the CASA and Clawson High School student will work at the Detroit Zoo this summer.
Jessica Fligger is new to Mint, and also lives fairly close to Palmer Park. She creates both paintings and ceramic tiles and pieces, and works with Mint Ambassador Barbara Barefield as her mentor.
Lia Massey is graduating from Cass Technical High School this year. She designs and creates original fashions and gowns (including the prom dress shown) and paintings of women wearing fashion apparel.
