I'll start with Naava. Naava makes paper mache characters. She has her phD and is a cell biologist working in the Department of Bio-Chemistry and Molecular Biology, doing cancer research at UNMC. She is original from Jerusalem Israel, writes her notes in Hebrew, and speaks 3 languages. I met her, and her family, at her house. She is totally delightful! As serious as her "day job" is, her personality really shows through in her paper mache people. I enjoyed every minute we were there. She uses her "empty" dining room as her work studio, however the room is far from empty. There are paper mache sculptures everywhere in various stages of completion. And beads, feathers, yarn, string, paint, tubs of shredded paper soaking in water...... You couldn't help but smile in that room.
