Seeds for Inspiration

Hello! My name is Madeline Stewart and I like to climb trees

I feel free with the air swirling and open views from all sides. It is refreshing to be in a space where the birds and squirrels hang out, while humans walk past obliviously, if at all.

I am a creature who gets really close to the ground to check out colorful grains of sand among miniature moss forests. I am a chaser of sunsets, climbing high to extend the distance of passing light.

I am starting to find ways to share these joys and explorations, which is part of why I am writing here today.

I have just embarked on the final months of my Undergraduate career in Glass Art at the Rochester Institute of Technology. In approximately two and a half months, my Thesis Show will be displayed, followed by graduation a month after. I am stepping nearer to a major transitional period in my life…but before I get there, I am immersed in this home stretch of completing my Thesis; the accumulation of four big years of exploration, discovery, and creation.

I am on a Journey with the intention to grow.

Everything starts from a seed of some sort. That bundle of information has the potential energy to expand and impact the rest of existence in bigger ways than one may imagine.

The Future is Female Project is a garden for seeds to be sowed. I am grateful for the aligning of paths and activities, and the opportunity to be involved in the beginning of this collective journey.
