Cassandra Tomerlin – Bio

Art Experience:

Being an architectural engineering major I have always loved the concept of combining art with human living/interaction. However, I have never been the best at drawing and have always loved technology and math and therefore found the perfect major for me.

My humanities depth is in art history because being an architectural major I love learning about where certain styles originated from. However, I am in this class because I wanted to put my creativity to work. Light is a aspect in life that most people take for granted and don’t notice in their day to day routine which means if a user notices a great piece of light art the artist has done their job well.

At this school I have taken a few artistic classes such as drafting classes for my major both hand drawing and computer software based (Revit and AutoCAD) and photoshop shop classes. Here are a few of my works..




AutoCAD: Design of a building facade system


I have a few hand drawings but I can not locate them right now. I will upload them when I find them.

Other Creative Arts:

Other creative arts that I enjoy include painting, photography, and crafting. I love painting on canvas, creating recycled art for housing décor, and making blankets.

Artistic Goals and Inspirations:

Some of my inspirations come from nature and abstract objects I see in day to day life. My artistic goals when creating pieces of art are to catch the viewers eye. I enjoy when someone looks at an art piece and has to think about it and take a second look.

Recent Creative Projects:

One of my recent projects I am proud of would have to be my MQP. This campus does not have a designated building for architectural engineering majors so my MQP team is a designing a building on the piece of land between the library and fuller. The architectural aspect is not as creative as we would have liked to design it because we only had a short amount of time to do so. Along with the architectural design we are designing the structural and mechanical systems.

Here is a render of the initial stages. The design is more defined now. The building on the left is the library, to the right in Kaven, and up above is fuller.
